The Byte

poster2 trynew just poster icon copyTheBYTE is creative, re-inventive, challenging and progressive – a well-established, dynamic young people’s theatre company in St Albans.

In 2017, TheBYTE won ‘Best Play’ and ‘The Adjudicator’s Award’ at the Welwyn Youth Drama Festival ith our produyction of Ali Smith’s ‘Just’. The judge praised the production as being ‘without blemish’ and gave his own award for the quality of the Chorus work.

In 2015 our reputation for the quality of our coaching was totally validated when TheBYTE was selected from over 300 groups across the UK to perform at the National Theatre.

And now our younger group has the amazing opportunity to perform outdoors at the Roman Amphitheatre of Verulamium in July. Our production of ‘The Birds’ will run on 17 & 18 July.

Come and join us!

We are currently building the next group of young people aged 11 – 14 to carry forward our superb reputation for exciting, innovative and entertaining theatre events. Writing, devising, acting, directing, stage managing, designing – whatever your interests you’ll be guided by experienced professionals to produce your own shows and participate in local or national festivals.

We build confidence and skills in a supportive, friendly and open environment in which all the group feel able to give things a go. And, most of all, we have FUN! TheBYTE is part of Best Theatre Arts, St.Albans’ leading independent theatre school for young people.

Classes are led by Lisa Schulberg, Artistic Director of Best School of Acting and leader of Tip of the Iceberg Theatre Company.

Fees are £165 per term, and the group meets every term-time Wednesday at The Maltings Arts Theatre from 4.30pm-6.15pm (school years 7-10) and 6.15pm-8pm (school years 11-13).
