Launceston Youth Ensemble pre-junior program

LYTE is proud to launch a new Pre-Junior theatre program, for children in Prep to Grade 2.

This is an awesome opportunity to join the fabulous company LYTE; make friends and have fun, develop drama skills, creativity, confidence and put on a show!

LYTE’s inclusive, student-centred programs focus on building both performance and interpersonal skills.

The Pre-Junior program has been specifically designed for young people in Prep-Grade 2, and our three tailor-made programs encourage individuality, teamwork and public speaking, whilst building confidence from within.

The Pre-Junior program is lead by Renée Bakker, LYTE’s Junior Company Director. Renée has an international pedigree in drama teaching and performing, and is looking forward to teaching the Pre- Junior class. For more information, or to register your place, please email Renée at
