Young people who wish to to audition for this course must have completed at least one term in another Young Gaiety course. This is to ensure that they have adequate confidence and experience for the course.
Throughout the year members of the company will expand their acting skills and get first hand experience running a theatre company. Each year, the company produces a showcase of new work created by the members from scratch at the end of term one and a full length production at the end of term three. In the Youth Theatre Company, you will be involved in all aspects of running a company. This will include fundraising, publicity, writing, acting, sound design, costume design and much more.
The Youth Theatre Company is led by theatre professionals, with external workshop practitioners invited in to do guest workshops with the company in a variety of performance skills.
This course is a stepping stone for young people who are serious about theatre. Many past Youth Theatre Company members now work professionally in the industry.
