The pathway to professional theatre & performance practice for Western australia's young people

Encouraging young people to work together - creating and presenting theatre - provokes creativity, lateral thinking and invites young people to empathise with lives and characters other than their own. We’re investing in future leaders  –  confident, creative, empathetic risk-takers. We believe these skills are not just the purvey of the theatre but of a holistic life.

And for those that are looking for a life in the arts we are commited to educating, enboldening and actively engaging by providing real-world work experiences, industry exposure and by establishing practical career pathways for young artists: both those new to the theatre and those training for professional deployment. We are committed to educating via engagement, providing opportunities to learn 'on-the-job' in professionally supported productions and in classes with the very best arts educators in the country. 

The WA Youth Theatre Company is a company that makes great theatre  – we just happen to like placing young people on our stages and in the position to make creative decisions, on both sides of the curtain. If you'd like to know more book for the next production and see what the new generation has to say: they're speaking up now and we're giving them a megaphone!
