Raw Talent Youth Theatre is the most exciting and original drama school for young people aged 6-16 in Birmingham. What makes it so exciting? Perhaps it’s because all the work is created by its members and then scripted by professional writers, or is it because we’re the only drama group that specialises in comedy, maybe it’s because we’re award winning. Then again it could be because so many of our members go on to work in the entertainment industry. Whatever the reason, we must be doing something right because our members come back term after term.
Founded by professional screen writers Claire Downes and Stuart Lane, who wanted to create a youth theatre in which every member gets a chance to shine. From the very first show in 1996 to the present day, scripts are specifically written for the cast so everyone has an important role to play in a Raw Talent show.
Raw Talent prides itself on original work devised by members of the drama group and then scripted by professional writers. Raw Talent is all about creating original high quality work in a fun filled environment.
"This isn't about creating the next superstar, although you never know! It's about seeing the courage each child has built to stand up in front of an audience and give it their best. As a parent, seeing your child filled with that confidence, sense of pride and accomplishment is priceless!." - Claire Caudry, Parent
