KYT (Drama)

Kindred, in association with Vivacity, now presents the Key Youth Theatre which has been running successfully for over 25 years from a professional building, providing drama classes that are challenging, educational and enjoyable. You do not need any previous experience to take part in KYT, just enthusiasm and commitment. A range of drama techniques and theatrical forms are explored including improvisation, voice, movement, devising and working with text. Whether you want to go into the Performing Arts industry or just want to take part, you will love being one of the KYT family!


The students explore various themes culminating in a sharing of their work to carers, family and friends.


The aims of the classes are to:

  • establish an interest in the performing arts

  • develop confidence, teamwork and cooperation

  • promote an enjoyment of drama and theatre

  • develop skills in movement and voice and the ability to interpret text.

  • develop cultural literacy

  • maintain regular attendance and good punctuality

  • learn any work set by tutors

  • attend in the final week when your group will share their work.

  • wear a Kindred/KYT T-shirt (reasonably priced and available throughout the term from our uniform suppliers)
