Children's Theatre

Ages: 6–12

Children's Theatre is for children ages 6-13 children looking to further their performance skills while still having a fun time. We have a short waiting list for this group email to add your child's name

Traditionally members of the Children’s Theatre are encouraged to get involved in as many of our charity performances as possible. We have regularly taken groups to perform in Leighton Buzzard and the surrounding areas for various charities. For the last 28 years LBCT would be found at the Milton Keynes Christmas events entertaining the busy shoppers with Christmas songs and popular musical theatre pieces. We also regularly visit several retirement homes to entertain with extracts from our current productions as well as the old classics.

Children's Theatre for ages 6-13 enjoy improvisation, role play, acting, singing and learning stagecraft We recently performed "Alice the Musical" in May 2023 at The Vandyke Theatre

Last year we performed alongside the LBCT Youth Section in "Matilda the musical" in July 2022 which raised £850 for Macmillan Cancer Support

Another recent production was Lionel Barts "Oliver" in March 2020 (just before lockdown!) This involved all CT, Mini and Youth Section members and raised £1,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support
