Youth Theatre Mission Statement

The Youth theatre is integral to the personal, social, political, aesthetic and educational development of young people. The theatre art is a universal expression of human kind and helps young people to find their place and voice in society.

The Youth theatre is open to all young people to participate in high quality, challenging and meaningful theatre experiences which engage them emotionally, intellectually and physically.

The Youth theatre will reflect and represent young people from all communities and the diversity of the world in which we live and will have access to a diverse range of cultures, genres, art forms and approaches.

Young people and those who work with them have the right to work in safe environments.
