What’s On

Welcome to our new Semester 2 Program!

At Canberra Youth Theatre, we work to create opportunities for young people to discover their own artistic practice and challenge their expectations about what theatre can be. We’ve put together a jam-packed calendar of workshops, masterclasses, productions, and expanded opportunities for young artists.

EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT: Book before Wednesday 17 July to receive a saving off all Weekly Workshops and Masterclasses.

We look forward to seeing you in Semester 2.

WEEKLY WORKSHOPS

Our weekly workshop programs teach core performance skills and provide a space for young people to develop and express their creative selves. We have renamed the workshop groups to be in line with school years, and introduced some exciting new changes for our young artists.

Please note: For Semester 2, classes are now divided by School Years rather than age.

YEARS 1 – 3
YEARS 4 – 6
YEARS 7 – 9
YEARS 10-12

HOLIDAY PROGRAMS

Our school holiday programs are a fun, creative way for young artists to develop their drama skills, make new friends and create a show in a week. We’re offering 2 school holiday programs for artists aged 7-12, plus the addition of a screen acting course for teenagers.
