Take the first step into the world of youth-led theatre.
Our CYT projects are designed for young people, aged 13 to 25, who want to be part of an inclusive creative community.
They are a fun way to meet like-minded people, talk about the issues you care about in your community, and most importantly, gain the confidence to be yourself. In this safe environment you can explore the wonderful world of theatre making and find your own artistic expression along the way. More information
