With the support of English Heritage we are performing a new play at Dover Castle.  Plus, with the support of the Dover Harbour Board we are also performing prior to the start of this year's Dover Music Festival in the Cruise Terminal.  Additional support has been given by Dover District Council, Dover Town Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund. 

The play is written by local Dover boy, Dan Drysdale, a member of DYT and author of two other plays about local events.  Much of the content has been drawn from historical records of Dover.

Please note that in order to watch the performance in Dover Castle then you have to book in in advance.  The show is free.




As part of development of new talent we are continuing with referring students, who want to participate, to the Spotlight Agency.  The venture is managed by committee member Nadine Lawson.

Fees for 2016 (reviewed annually at AGM)
The fees were increased from the Summer Term to:
     £65 for a single discipline (either Drama or Dance)
     £120 for two disciplines (Drama and Dance taken together)



This term finishes after the performances in the Castle and the Cruise Terminal.  Next term is from Tuesday 13 September to  November/December (TBC) 2016, with break for half-term on 25 October.  Details of the Christmas Show to follow.

Dover Youth Theatre Facebook page continues to be well used as the place to find all the latest news about performances, rehearsal schedules (and important changes) and many of the latest photographs.  So if you would like to keep up with the latest news then please become a friend of DYT.

Welcome to the Home Page for the Dover Youth Theatre (DYT).  This site is by way of an introduction not just to DYT and those we support but also to all those kind people who help us to help others.  We will try and make it interesting as possible and we'd welcome any advice and comment.
My standing plea remains, that if we can expand the site (now 6+ years old) then that is something I would like to do. Ideas please for links to other sites, DYT members' blogs, etc, details of our supporters.  One recent suggestion is that we post a head-and-shoulder picture of all students on the web site, with appropriate permission from parents / guardians. Or maybe on a separate site to align with the use of the Spotlight Directory... WHAT ARE YOUR VIEWS?
