Past members have progressed from key experiences in our theatre productions and programs to careers as directors, actors, writers, designers and arts managers. Many others have used the confidence, creativity and capability honed at WAYTCo to secure work as independent theatre artists, or train further, as the handpicked students of the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), National Institute for Dramatic Art (NIDA), or at elite vocational schools like The Strasburg Institute and Atlantic in the United States.

We are currently seeking to reconnect with our alumni. If you have been a member of WAYTCo, or know someone who was, please email Leah at
