Based at the newly redeveloped Perth Theatre, Perth Youth Theatre (PYT) is one of Scotland’s oldest youth theatres, engaging over 200 young people per week. We run a weekly youth theatre for ages 4 – 18 years. PYT members have the opportunity to learn theatre skills from professional tutors and our inhouse production team. The senior group (ages 16 – 18 years) produce one main stage and one studio show annually. All other groups perform in studio showcases during our Horsecross Youth Arts Festival in June. PYT members are regularly offered roles in main stage Perth Theatre productions under the direction of Artistic Director Lu Kemp.
We also run weekly dance and singing groups for young people plus a two-week musical theatre summer school in July each year for 5-16year olds, with the final performance taking place on the main stage at Perth Concert Hall.
