2016 is Raw Talent Youth Theatres 20th Birthday! Raw Talent is one of Birmingham’s best known, most original and funniest youth theatres for 4 – 16 year olds.
We pride ourselves on providing high quality creative arts courses, topic based learning, originality and enthusiasm for young people.
Raw Talent Youth Theatre is all about making new friends, learning new skills and celebrating our love of theatre in a high energy and fun atmosphere. At Raw Talent, we pride ourselves on developing our members’ self confidence and improving their performance skills.
Raw Talent Youth Theatre was established in 1996 and since that time many members have gone on to appear on television and in films and many also work behind the scenes.
Raw Talent has an open access policy, we don’t hold auditions to become a member and we make sure that everyone has an important role in the productions. Because our members devise the shows, they dictate how big or small a role they want to give themselves!
For 4 – 7 year olds:
Raw Talent Teenies – Raw Talent Teenies is the first youth theatre in Sutton Coldfield to work with children aged 4-7. We see Teenies as a running start for our older groups. The Teenies have a look at how to create characters, learn lines, and produce a small scale performance all whilst having bucket loads of Teenie fun!
Ongoing activity every Thursday 4:10 – 5:10pm
For 7 – 11 year olds:
Raw Talent 7 – 11 is the next step up as a Raw Talenteer. The members get loads of input into ideas for the show, characters, and how big or small they would like their part to be. The group works with directors for 12 weeks to create a full scale, hilarious, original comedy performance.
Ongoing activity every Tuesday 4.30pm – 6.00pm
For 11 – 16 year olds:
At this stage of being a Raw Talenteer, the opportunities are endless. We take our older group on trips out, to perform at ArtsFest, and get them involved in as many external auditions as possible. Our most recent audition was for CBBC! The 11 – 16 group pretty much create their entire show (with a little help from our directors). They devise their characters, the plot and story line, and then work with us to produce something no other youth theatre can achieve. Go Raw Talent!
Ongoing activity every Thursday 5.15pm – 7.15pm
