Information about our Youth Theatre (and under-16 performers)



Chorley Youth Theatre is based at the theatre, and is run by children aged between 11 and 18, under guidance from CADOS. Because it is run by young people with the aim of performing two shows per year, places are limited and intakes usually only happen in January and September.


To be a member of Youth Theatre a child must be 11 years-old AND at Secondary School.



We're getting a lot of inquiries about joining Chorley Youth Theatre but at the moment the group is full up. We're not operating a waiting list because it looks like being at least September 2019 before any spaces become available so please don't get in touch.


For CADOS shows, it is very rare that under-16s are used in productions however it will say so on on audition notices so if there is a part anyone can audition.
