Past the Shallows
Based on Favel Parrett’s novel linked to the Stage 6 English Curriculum, Past the Shallows is an ode to brotherhood and heart-wrenching, lyrical exploration of mortality, family secrets and the capacity for both brutality and tenderness within contemporary masculinity, set on the wild and beautiful south coast of Tasmania.
Intersection Festival 2024
The creative reimagining of our popular Voices Project and Intersection plays, Intersection Festival gives your students the opportunity to create, perform, film and share their interpretation of brand new work written by some of Australia’s best emerging writers with a showcase performance in August 2024.
ATYP’s Student Workshops give your students practical experience in specific areas of drama and the drama curriculum. As the national youth theatre company, we are experts in youth practice and can tailor our workshops to secondary drama classes and primary year groups.
We co-produce an ATYP play with you at your school. We have packaged up eight of our most successful plays and will provide scripts, support material and an industry Director, Designer and/or Stage Manager to work with you to bring the play to life in your space.
ATYP offers an immersive work experience program for students in Year 10 or Year 11. Students are immersed in the day-to-day runnings of our company and will experience working with a range of departments including production, workshops, marketing, education and writing.
