Junior Drama Group for children and young people at Youth Theatre, Shaftesbury Arts Centre. The Junior Drama Group regularly supplies actors for the centre’s adult productions, particularly the annual summer musical and winter pantomime. The members are given training in speech, mime, acting, dance and backstage skills by experienced members of the centre. The young people perform short productions reflecting the term or year’s work, take part in centre productions and have entered plays, with some success, in the annual Dorset Drama League Festival.
