Reamus Youth Theatre gathers community members between the ages of 18 and 30 and aids in developing their skills in a wide range of theatre concepts. These vibrant and talented thespians often produce fantastic entertainment for the general public.
What Does Reamus Do?
For one night per week, Reamus meet to extend their theatre skills through various workshops, rehearse performances and, of course, have fun. Reamus has performed an annual Shakespeare most years since 2002 and has performed short play nights and play in a day productions.
Acting based workshops help Reamus members to explore facets of the art such as improvisation, character development and movement while occasionally tapping into other performing art forms including dance and singing.
Not only does Reamus provide a stage on which young adults can perform, it also offers the opportunity to become involved in the technical side of theatre including directing, lighting, sound, costumes, set design and hair and makeup.
Scholarships have been offered to Reamus members to extend their theatre knowledge through external, professional workshops. More scholarships will be offered in the future for Reamus and other members of the theatre.
