Risborough Youth Theatre’s first show was Dracula Spectacular in 2001. Since then RYT has gone from strength to strength producing two full-scale shows a year in local halls and theatres with full technical support.

Risborough Youth Theatre rehearses on Sunday afternoons in the Autumn and Spring Terms. The spring production is a musical chosen to allow as many of our performers to take part as possible, from junior through intermediate to senior. Perhaps the highlight of the year is the Christmas panto which is suitable for all our age groups and is the usual mix of pop songs, dance, jokes and innuendo.

In 2019 for the first time we ran three successful summer workshops in dance, singing and acting, with the aim of increasing participants’ confidence in the auditions that followed soon after, and as a bonus discovering some new local talent.


Auditions are held in July and December soon after the last production. Whether your interests lie in acting, singing, dancing or all three, we will find a part for you. We understand that auditions can be a scary experience for some, so we will do our best to make it easy you to give your best and perhaps discover talents you didn’t know you had. There will be the opportunity to perform solo, or for those who are less confident, as part of a group. No one is forced to do anything they choose not to.

We have our own professional-standard digital sound and lighting system and if the technical aspects of theatre are what interest you, we can join our technical team.

RYT productions feature live backing music ranging from a four-piece band to a 12-piece orchestra and we are always happy to welcome new musicians.
