Entertain, Energise & Empower!
Open to young people aged 10yrs+

June 2022

JK is going to be refocusing it's provision from September 2022. 

Our aim will be on the actor training for young creatives, delivering experiences to actively engage and empower                           young people in Mid Sussex. Throughout these sessions our focus will be to help artists to find their own creative identity, discover new opportunities in collaborative theatre and challenge imaginative choices. 

These changes do unfortunately mean that our Main Company and Mini Mover sessions will be closing after the Summer                term with a new timetable in place for September;

Youth Theatre for ages 10-13yrs 

Acting Platform for ages 13yrs+

Please see the Sessions tab on this website.

We endeavour to continue our theatre camps during the holidays with our Summer 2022 filling up as we write! 

At JK, we are incredibly proud of what we have achieved as a team over the past 14 years and whilst this will be an ending for some of us, we're really excited about the new beginning it brings for so many others.

We would like to extend our thanks to all for their ongoing support of JK Theatre Arts and we look forward to what the future has in store for us!
