About SPY Theatre


Based in the Millgate Arts Centre, Delph, a fully working theatre in the heart of Saddleworth, SPY Theatre ( Saddleworth Players Youth Theatre) will inspire and excite local young people, allowing them to experience all aspects of stage craft as they gain in technique, imagination, and confidence.

Launching in January 2021, SPY Theatre offers professional tuition in weekly classes for ages 14-18 in a Covid-secure setting.

From September 2021, the age range will increase to 21.

The Season will include a Spring showcase and Christmas production, with opportunities to star on and off stage.
