Performing is a key part of the Theatre School experience and for most students the highlight of the year. All students get the opportunity to be part of the performances relevant to their year group. We perform in a variety of different settings both traditional theatre venues like The Square Chapel as well as site specific locations like Halifax Minster and the Industrial Museum. We aim to perform a mix of texts from classics to contemporary pieces written specifically for teenagers.

Below is a list of past productions. Click on the title for more information on individual plays and a link to the photo album. If there is no link on the title it is because we do not yet have any information to display. If you have programmes or photos for any of those productions please contact us via the website so we can add them to our website.

If you just want to browse the photo albums go to the Photos page.

If looking at the past productions has brought back happy memories of your time at Theatre School please consider becoming a Friend of CTS and help us to continue providing drama opportunities for the next generation of young people. More information on Friends is here.
