The youth section of ESOSOC, called YESOS, is a youth theatre group for 8 - 21 year olds based in Reigate and Redhill. They perform one musical theatre production every summer, and offer three or four all day "Weekend workshops" on Sundays throughout the year.
The workshops are designed to develop the musical theatre skills of their young members, and the society’s trainers are a combination of YESOS leaders and outside expert trainers.The main event of the year is their summer show, which is intensively rehearsed and then performed during the first two weeks of the school summer holidays.
YESOS endeavours to provide the youngsters with as professional an experience as possible. YESOS shows are performed in a professional theatre (The Harlequin Theatre, Redhill), with professional musicians and technicians providing sophisticated light and sound effects.
The YESOS creative team is led by a professional director and performer, and a professional Musical Director, and is supported by other talented and experienced members of ESOSOC. The youngsters are given a short 'run', being able to perform a full length show four times. This is an unusual privilege for such young performers and is an experience they never forget.
Recent shows have included Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, Seussical and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Les Miserables School Edition is the main show for 2015.
