Youth Theatre & Young Company

Dundee Rep Youth Theatre and Young Company provides exciting opportunities for young people to explore their creativity in a safe, inclusive and fun environment. We focus on performing and theatre-making skills whilst building confidence and developing life skills.

At Dundee Rep Youth Theatre and Young Company participants learn through skills based workshops, and then work towards a performance. Each group performs at least once a year, these range from sharing’s for family and friends to full-scale productions in our auditorium. We also look to create new opportunities for our youth theatres and in the past we have taken our work to festivals as well as creating site-specific performances within the city. 

We strive to create additional opportunities for our youth theatre members. As well as regular trips to see theatre both in Dundee and beyond, recent opportunities have included:

 

  • Performing our adaptation of ‘The Little Prince’ at the National Festival of Youth Theatre as well as the Children’s Festival at Dundee Rep.
  • Site-specific performances in venues across the city.
  • Performance opportunities in Ensemble productions.
  • Attending the YTAS symposium as a young delegate.
  • Bespoke workshops delivered by a variety of Scottish theatre practitioners.
