A NEW youth theatre is to open in Morecambe.
The Dukes Creative Learning Department in Lancaster has teamed up with More Music in Morecambe to launch More: Dukes Youth Theatre on January 18.
A drama studio has been created upstairs in the newly refurbished Hothouse in Devonshire Road where young people aged 13 to 15 will be able to learn theatre skills which can boost confidence and will lead to performances in Morecambe, Lancaster and possibly further afield.
Professional youth theatre director Lenny Andrew St Jean will lead the sessions which will take place every Wednesday from 4.30pm to 6.30pm over a 13-week term.
The Dukes has six youth theatre groups in Lancaster at its youth specific venue, DT3, in Moor Lane but this is the first time it has set up a youth theatre in Morecambe.
