Faust International Youth Theatre provides challenging and creative workshops that engage our students in the world of theatre and performing arts.
We introduce students to a world of theatre and creativity, helping them to develop performance skills, theatre knowledge, teamwork, individual expression and confidence. All groups are led by experienced and highly trained drama teachers, with emphasis throughout on providing high-quality workshops that our members enjoy.
Introduce members to different aspects of the performing world
Look at a particular theme each term. Examples include: improvisation, puppetry, live performance, masks, mime, movement, musical theatre, pantomime, script-work, set design, stage-fighting, story-telling or writing plays
Are designed for young people aged 4 and over, with groups divided according to age
Are suitable for students with an interest in all things theatrical, with or without drama experience
Take place at various schools, usually as part of the school’s extra-curricular activities
Are led by practicing professionals and qualified drama teachers and assisted by experienced enthusiasts with all leaders undergoing a thorough selection process and chosen based on their experience and enthusiasm
To join our workshops children must be fluent in English and have reached the required age before the commencement of the term.
Registration is done either through the school’s activities coordinator or directly through Faust. If you would like to register in an existing school programme, please contact us for further details.
Once registered, our members receive a Term Schedule which outlines details of workshop content, introduces the group leaders and provides other important information. Parents are kept informed about the progress of the group through regular leader reports, accompanied by photographs of the groups in action. Parents are often invited to an end of term open session to see their children’s work. During the course of the year additional productions may be performed.
At Faust, the learning is just as important as the performing and Faust does not exist purely to stage productions. In fact, commitment is the key and those registered should be keen on taking part. We believe strongly that everyone in a performance plays an essential role in the success of a production and emphasise the team effort over the individual.
