Youth Theatre

The Hazlitt Youth Theatre started life in September 1997 as a weekly workshop for 11-18 year olds. Since then, HYT has expanded dramatically and now consists of nearly 200 members, aged 6-18 years. Singing lessons and dance classes have now been added to the schedule plus holiday workshops, summer shows,  a yearly musical, and magical Christmas shows. 

Each week members attend a workshop dedicated to the learning of different aspects of the theatrical world including; acting, performing arts, improvisation, devising, text work, theatre styles, film, stage combat, mime and a whole lot more besides. In recent times members have devised and produced their own work and learnt the basics of lighting and sound design.

HYT aims to provide an exciting and broad look at the imaginative world of theatre and gives young people a chance to form new friendships, gain in self-confidence and most importantly have fun. So if the theatre is something you are interested in, HYT is the place for you.

Here is what some of the members, parents and friends have to say about us:

“The talent and confidence shone through and made the evening the great success it was” Cllr. Mrs. Denise Joy, former Mayor of Maidstone

"HYT is extremely well organised, professional and great fun" Mrs. Green, Parent.

“During my time at HYT I have had a lot of fun! I have also learnt a great amount, not only about drama and the theatre, but also life skills that could only be taught at the Hazlitt. But the best thing...meeting a load of great people”. Will Hodges - Former Member.

“There is nowhere else locally that has given me the great opportunities to perform on stage and in such a professional environment. I love being a member of HYT, it’s such a brilliant place to be”. Laura Fawcett - Former Member.

“HYT is like family to me, it's a place where you can feel completely at home whilst learning new skills but also having immense amounts of fun. The opportunities and the friendships I have found won't be forgotten in a hurry." Charlie Weston - Former Member.
