Best Shot Youth Theatre was established in 1980 and is a pioneer in youth drama, particularly the idea of doing a full scripted show or major musical in a week.
There is something for all ages from 8 to 30 year olds.


Beauty And The Beast



Saturday morning drama workshops during school terms are held on Wimbledon Broadway (next door to Polka Theatre). Solid training is given in acting skills through the medium of actors' games and improvisation.  Many students start at 8 or 9 years old and continue until they are 18+.

Six-day full-time courses take place in each of the main school holidays. These holiday courses  rehearse and perform a major production  at Wimbledon StudioTheatre. A full week in a professional theatre! It's hard work but exciting and fun with new friends to be made. Some students now have a C.V. of upwards of 15 productions!

Beauty And The Beast



The company is staffed entirely by theatre professionals. A theatre director leads the Saturday workshops, and the holiday courses have a professional director (who is a member of Equity and of The Directors Guild), musical director and choreographer. There is usually a high staff / student ratio on these holiday courses.
