This charity is eligible for the Grow Your Tenner 2013!
To introduce young people to the world of theatre by means of periodical productions, either through performance, by assisting back stage or as an audience. We strive to give youngsters the opportunity to reach their full potential by providing as professional environment as possible. They benefit from instruction and guidance in theatre activities. We encourage members to try something new and discover their hidden talents. We aim to make a difference to their futures.
Due to the geographical isolation of the area young people are unable to take part in drama activities unless they are able to get to Halifax and this excludes many. We are open to all young people and for those on low income the preferred choice as we ask only for an annual membership fee. Past members are now in drama related careers; as performers, as technicians or in stage management. At CVYT they learn that hard work and commitment is rewarded and make ideal employees wherever they go.
The success of CVYT can be measured by the response we receive from participants and their audiences. Many families send letters, emails of thanks and members of the general public also feel compelled to write. Members always write about their experience after show week. Here are a few: 'One of the best experiences of my life' - 'Loved every single minute. It's been an amazing experience I'll never forget. Thank you so much' - 'I've had the best time ever'- 'It was so fun, everyone was lovely'
We're always looking for new volunteers. Everyone has a skill they can offer whether it be supervising rehearsals, working backstage, helping front of house, building sets, making costumes... the list is endless. Please come and join us, we're always happy to see new helpers!
