RCYT aims to combine the abilities of many different young people in an environment where they can learn and develop their skills in a non-judgemental atmosphere. No previous experience is necessary, the only requirement is that members have an open mind and are willing to have fun while meeting new people.

We are buzzing to kick off our new term as we start to celebrate our 25th year. It’s going to be a mega year with lots of workshops, actor training, special guests, theatre trips, performances and buckets of fun!
