Phoenix Youth Theatre (PYT)

At PYT we explore and create theatre!

Phoenix Youth TheatreWith a slight shift in emphasis from our Theatre School classes towards more personal responsibility, we offer the opportunity for dedicated young people to participate in regular theatre activities. PYT is led by highly experienced and professionally trained staff. We encourage and nurture the creativity and technique of the young people who commit themselves to regular, weekly attendance. Empowerment of young people in the art of creating theatre is at the core of our existence.

We ensure that the members of PYT participate in high quality, engaging, challenging and meaningful theatre experiences. Our weekly lessons explore both performance techniques and skills, alongside developing theatrical work for performance. We provide the opportunity for our members to take creative risks in safe contexts.

"Youth theatre is vital 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." National Association of Youth Theatres (NAYT)

PYT recognises our members as artists in their own right and, in return, we expect a high level of commitment and co-operation to the company from them. It is a positive and effective relationship and nurtures on-going success.
