Highly sought after, premier training

Curated and led by the Artistic Director, with contributions from leading industry artists, this year-long program takes participants through the foundations of theatre and contemporary performance making. For those who have acquired some of the performance toolkit already, the program reinforces and extends.

Running Sundays from late March and culminating in a December invited-guest showcase, Ensemble provides members with an extensive training program of weekly engagements and masterclasses. Also, when casting and crewing opportunities arise at WAYTCo, current ensembles are our first port of call!

  • Beginners (11-14 y.o.), 1.5hr-long workshops
  • Juniors (15-17 y.o.), 2hr-long workshops
  • Seniors (18-26 y.o.), 3hr-long workshops
