Supporting and nurturing young people through theatre is, and always will be, at the heart of Masterclass. As the in-house education charity of the Theatre Royal Haymarket, for the past 20 years we have been dedicated to opening up this beautiful and historic building as a resource for young people so they can gain hands-on experiences through theatre.
Our charitable objectives are to advance the education of young people aged 16 – 30 by promoting the study of drama and in particular the art and craft of theatre.
Our programme is a mix of inspiring and empowering talks with leading industry figures, onstage workshops, careers advice sessions, creative opportunities and paid apprenticeships for young people aged 16 – 30.
We are devoted to using theatre as a platform to build confidence, strengthen self-esteem, nurture creativity and develop business and life skills in young people –the talent of the future.
