The Western Australian Youth Theatre Company (WA Youth Theatre) is a
unique organisation integral to the landscape of theatre in Western
Australia. Its uniqueness lies in its programs that young people can access to
develop their skills, with opportunities to work in public productions under
the guidance of professional artists in professional theatre venues. Key to all
of our activities is the artistic rationale to create theatre by youth, with
youth, for youth.
WA Youth Theatre is the leading youth theatre company in Western
Australia because of the great emphasis it places on bringing young people
(aged 13 - 26) into close contact with young professional artists – writers,
designers, directors, choreographers, musicians – who act as mentors, role
models and inspirational leaders in both training and full scale productions,
providing a bridge to the mainstream theatre industry.
In its 25 year history the company has engaged in discovering and inspiring
some of WA’s most loved and successful performers and artist who took
their first steps in our care.
