Youth Ensemble

In 2022 The Watermill Theatre established The Watermill Youth Ensemble, a company formed of talented young people aged 11+ who take part in one of The Watermill Theatre’s regular weekly groups.

The company not only gives young people the opportunity to flourish onstage but also behind the scenes in stage management, costume, and assistant director roles. The company also put their unique stamp on the performances using their own experiences or learnt skills in creating accessible performances with British Sign Integrated performances and Audio Described performances.

The Watermill Youth Ensemble performed their first production, The Girl of Ink and Stars in March – April 2022 with much celebration.
