Atypical Advisors

Calling ATYP’s young theatre makers

If you are interested in learning how the national youth theatre selects plays, identifies projects and works with playwrights to develop scripts, then join the ATYPicals Youth Advisory Group. The ATYPicals are our most important resource, a dedicated committee of 13-26 year-olds who meet between June and October.

Working directly with Artistic Director Fraser Corfield and our youngest staff member, Administration Assistant Janine Lau, along with members of ATYP’s creative team, the ATYPicals get a unique insight into how a professional theatre company works. Most importantly, the ATYPicals become directly involved in creative planning and the discussions that determine the company’s programs. All participants must be familiar with the company has participated in either a production, workshop, work experience, or have volunteered with us.

If you would like to join us in 2020 please email your contact details and a brief explanation for why you want to be an Atypical to The first meeting will be held on Monday 8 June at 4:30 via Zoom.
