Have you ever wanted to change the past? Charlie Pilgrim does. And with the prototype of her time machine—The Mobius—ready for a test run, she’s hoping to get her chance. Unfortunately, starting up the machine accidentally creates a closed time loop that adds a new Charlie to the world every 24 hours. With the population rising and group dynamics coming into play, things go from Interstellar to Lord of the Flies pretty fast. To save her soul and prevent the universe from collapsing under the weight of a mounting series of mind-bending paradoxes, Charlie is forced to do battle… with herself.

ATYP’s workshop program is where the story begins. We pride ourselves on not only sharing acting techniques but also on providing a safe space where young people’s thoughts and opinions are encouraged and valued. The workshops are led by some of the industry’s most experienced tutors, all of whom are working professionals. Be challenged, build self-confidence and of course discover as much as you can about the dramatic process. At ATYP you don’t just join an acting class, you join a community!

For over 55 years ATYP have used theatre experiences to enrich the lives of young people. ATYP continues this legacy to nurture today’s young Australians, the next generation of creators, thinkers and leaders with a bevy of engaging drama and writing workshops, yearly production seasons, writing programs and a youth advisory panel.
In 2017, thanks to the generosity of our valued community of supporters, ATYP delivered 6 productions, supported the development of 41 emerging playwrights, 103 actors in professional productions, provided over 120 scholarships for children from disadvantaged backgrounds and made accessible many more life-changing theatre experiences for thousands of young people.
Last year, ATYP commissioned a research report to evaluate the impact of our theatre programs, surveying over 1,200 ATYP participants, parents, alumni and other stakeholders. The research of the ATYP IMPACT EVALUATION REPORT found that youth theatre does positively boost 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.
With your generous gift you too can play a role in the delivery of transformational theatre programs that positively impact the lives of thousands of young Australians each year.
