For over 55 years ATYP has 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. We rely on our generous community of supporters to do this.
In 2019, thanks to the generosity of our valued community of supporters, ATYP delivered five productions, supported the development of 62 emerging playwrights, over 100 actors and creatives, provided over 90 scholarships for children from disadvantaged backgrounds and made accessible many more life-changing theatre experiences for thousands of young people.

Our impact is compelling.
In 2017, ATYP commissioned a research report to evaluate the impact of our theatre programs. Over 1,200 ATYP participants, parents, alumni and other stakeholders were surveyed.
The research of the ATYP Impact evaluation report found that youth theatre positively boosts mental wellbeing, reduces anxiety, builds resilience and fosters skills that benefit STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) learning – irrespective of a young person’s career aspirations.
