Do you love Acting, Drama, Games and all things Theatre? Would you like to make your very own plays alongside the professionals? Then come join us at Somerset Youth Theatre: Shepton Mallet!

We are a youth theatre community in Shepton Mallet that meet every week on a Thursday, during term time at the Shepton Mallet Youth Theatre, Paul Street Community Centre, 26 Paul Street, Shepton Mallet. BA4 5LA. When signing up, we ask that our members commit to attend every Thursday throughout the term.

Somerset Youth Theatre: Shepton Mallet (6-18 year olds) meet Thursdays 5.00-6.00pm

We provide safer spaces for young people to create, explore and find their voice through Theatre and the Arts. Our sessions are delivered by professional Artists and experienced facilitators with Enhanced DBS.

Sessions are offered using a ‘Pay What You Choose’ payment system. Places are fully funded for those in receipt of FSM/PP. We understand that not everyone is in the same financial position, so please pay what you feel you can. We would never turn any young person away due to cost or access. We believe in Arts for ALL young people. We are incredibly grateful to our funders and partners who support us to make this happen.

Richard Young along with his wife Abby founded Tall Tails Theatre Company in February 2019 in order to make theatre accessible for people in Somerset, the south-west, and for national and international festivals.

They believe that everyone should be able to enjoy theatre, and make their shows with that in mind. Tall Tails shows kindle a supportive environment for audiences and artists where  individual and collective creativity, imagination and participation are encouraged.
