The Rec Youth Theatre Company, is Buxton’s well-established theatre company for young people. We deliver weekly drama classes that develop performing arts skills, are creative, fun, and help build confidence. Each member of the company is valued and everyone’s development is at the heart of our work. As well as weekly classes, REC offers opportunities for the company to create public performances, master classes and platforms for members to develop their own work.

We pride ourselves on offering exciting, professional and challenging training and opportunities, as well as providing a space to be creative and work with like-minded people. We are very proud of, and thrive on, the attitude, level of discipline and commitment of our members and tutors. It has always been an important aspect of the company that membership is open to all. For example we guarantee that each term every youth theatre member who wishes, can take part in a production, with no audition. Our main rule is that no one is ever left out and we have a zero tolerance of any kind of bullying. Everyone should feel totally at home at REC; it has proved to be a safe and supportive environment where members can develop at their own pace and to their own standard. A good attitude, enthusiasm and a willingness to take part are valued above everything else.
