Vamos Theatre is delighted to announce that Vamos Young People’s Theatre (VYPT) is starting a new group for 9 -13 year olds in September 2015, and we are now recruiting!
VYPT offers young people the opportunity to experience high-quality drama training, with a particular emphasis on the innovative and engaging mask theatre for which Vamos is renowned. Members take part in regular skills sessions, in research and development, in technical work and in performance. Places are highly sought after with only 20 places available per year.
“I have been a member of Vamos Young People’s Theatre for five years. It has been a wonderful experience which, without doubt, has changed and shaped my future. The opportunity to work with a range of actors from all backgrounds, ages and locations around the county has broadened my understanding of the wider world, along with forming some amazing friendships. It has increased my self-confidence and enabled me to grow as a person.” Alice -VYPT member
VYPT is run by Vamos Theatre, the UK’s leading full mask theatre company, who is proud to be based in Worcester. Our innovative full mask theatre productions tour nationally and internationally; we deliver training and education workshops in a wide range of settings including schools, colleges, businesses, care homes, festivals, and conferences; and we take Walkabout theatre into the streets of Britain and beyond.
A Vamos Theatre full mask show is wordless, telling its story through physical communication, supported by strong visual design and an original soundtrack. Vamos makes accessible, humorous, human, and fearless work based on stories of real people, and its productions are rooted strongly in social research.
