We are a youth theatre community in Yeovil that meets every week on a Tuesday during term time at Westlands Entertainment Venue, Westbourne Close, Yeovil, BA20 2DD.

We provide safe spaces for young people to create, explore and find their voice through Theatre and the Arts and do this with professional artists and experienced facilitators who are all DBS checked.

We take theatre out to the community as audiences and we challenge traditional notions of ‘theatre’ as an inaccessible or an elitist experience.

Our Group (6-11 year olds) meet from 5.15pm – 6.15pm @ £5.00 per session

Our Company (11-18 year olds) meet from 6.30pm – 7.30pm @ £5.00 per session

To book your place for the term, please contact
Westlands Entertainment Venue Box Office on 01935 422884.

We are grateful to our funders to be able to provide access to the Arts for all young people.

David Reakes

David is now well into his third decade as a professional actor. He has performed in all four corners of the UK, and as far afield as Norway and Italy. Back in 2017 he worked for five months with the BBC Radio Drama Company and was briefly all over your radio like a big ginger rash.

He also works as a storyteller (using his alter ego The Professor), a playwright (his company, Tor Theatre, which he set up with Angela Laverock) and a teacher.

He lives in Glastonbury and is actually an Elder Bard of the town.
