Byre Youth Theatre Ltd: Theatre arts classes for children and young people
Theatre arts classes for children and young people


Byre Youth Theatre Limited is a private Limited Company by guarantee. We are not for profit and any money made is reinvested into our educational projects. As well as providing Youth Theatre and singing classes we are also available for CPD Sessions, Bespoke Schools/Nursery Workshops, Training and Team Building.

Originally known as St Andrews Youth Theatre, classes used to run in three separate venues across St. Andrews on a rotational basis before settling at The Byre Theatre. It was there that the then facilitators Emma Stothers and Ashley Foster rebranded the group and named it Byre Youth Theatre. Due to the liquidation of Byre Theatre Ltd and the subsequent closure of the theatre in January 2013, the Youth Theatre had to re-locate and change the format of how it is run. The rest, as they say, is history.

Since the re-opening of The Byre in late 2014, BYT has returned some of it's classes to The Byre Theatre whilst others run in surrounding venues. Despite the two remaining separate entities, they are closely linked and work together wherever possible. BYT is now under the Artistic Direction of Ashley Foster and classes aim to provide young people with the skills and confidence to perform in a variety of settings but, most importantly allow students to be themselves, make friends, have fun and develop skills that will be transferrable across all aspects of their lives.

If you have any queries regarding our classes or any of the work we do, please don't hesitate to get in contact.
