“WA Youth Theatre Company is, under the guidance of James Berlyn, creating unique and profound works of theatre that connect story and place and people. These productions are so arresting because of the unadorned honesty and poignancy of the performances from the young actors in the company.”

– Iain Grandage, Perth Festival Artistic Director

Championing youth voice, agency and perspective, at WAYTCo we actively support and enable young people to tell their own stories through writing, making and staging their own theatre works.

Each year we stage 2-3 of our own productions, and collaborate with other theatre companies for at least one other work. If you would like to take part in a future production, you need to sign up for our annual general auditions.
