the young company 

brush stroke 1.png

The Young Company is a drama group for teenagers aged 13 - 18 years.

This youth group explores a diverse range of theatre crafts and often work with leading industry professionals on a variety of different drama skills from stage combat to Shakespeare; puppetry, mask, improvisation and so forth.

This Croydon based group has a long history of creating unusual and exceptional theatre productions with drama performances at a wide range of venues and festivals. Their most recent production was Alice In Wonderland, performed on a boat, sailing up the river Thames as part of the International Youth Arts Festival.

As SAVVY is dedicated to an ensemble way of working, we aim to have no more than 15 participants in the group. (If we don't have space, prospective members are able to join our waiting list and are given the chance to take part in other workshop opportunities.)

In addition to their own show, the Young Company regularly support other SAVVY groups (both onstage and off-stage) and every year take part in our annual Christmas show, that brings our entire company together. 


Thursdays, 4.30pm – 7pm during term time.

how much

It costs £84 per/term to join us.

Term fees are due on the first day, or may be paid in two instalments.  We do not charge for additional rehearsals or show days.

As an inclusive company it is important that we find the right group for participants to thrive in. It is also important that new members get to try out SAVVY without worrying about obligation - therefore new
members are able to join us for 2 weeks before the term fees are charged.


PLEASE NOTE: We do not want financial pressures to stop people from attending and want to remove any stigma or guilt attached to not being able to pay fees. SAVVY can offer support for anyone facing financial difficulties who wishes to attend our ongoing groups. 

Want to join

SAVVY has a ‘no experience necessary’ policy for anyone wanting to take part.

There is no audition process to join us, just a commitment to weekly attendance, creating exciting theatre projects and having fun!
