Big Spirit Youth Theatre are based at The Queen Mother Theatre, Hitchin
Box office 01462 55166 - www.qmt.org.uk
Well it is first and foremost a youth theatre. It was founded in 1983 at The Queen Mother Theatre in Hitchin and we are still here some 33 years later. In fact the first member who joined Big Spirit when he was 17 is now 50 years of age – and a very successful professional actor!
This was long before all the stage schools that now proliferate in the area got going so you can see - we have a long history of helping people realise their potential to become extraordinary performers. Throughout all that time we have kept to the same principles which are as true today as they were when we started:
Many of our alumni go on to become professional performers and we provide a recognised pathway for those wanting to go onto drama school. But Big Spirit is also for those who want to learn how to act just for fun. That is very much at the heart of what Big Spirit is all about – having fun while working like crazy! It’s a wonderful combination and a philosophy that gets the very best out of the talent that each one of us possesses.
