About us

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
