Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) is the national youth theatre company. We exist to connect young people with the professional theatre industry locally, regionally and nationally.
For over 55 years ATYP have used theatre experiences to enrich the lives of young people. We continue this legacy to nurture today’s young Australians, the next generation of creators, thinkers and leaders. Our engaging drama and writing workshops, yearly production seasons, writing programs and a youth advisory panel benefit thousands of young people aged 4-26 years old each year.
Australian Theatre for Young People specialises in integrating professional theatre practice with supportive youth theatre process. We love working with all levels of the arts industry, from the most celebrated national companies to the smallest youth theatres. Our work supports young people from their first theatre experience to their first professional production.
