The Young Rep is an award winning company of aspiring young actors given access to high quality development and training. 2017-2018 saw the company tour three children’s theatre productions around the North West, receive commissioning from O2 to devise a production exploring the impact of mental health on young people, and have access to free workshops at the theatre with a West End Director and other industry professionals. The company was awarded a finalists’ prize for Best Group at the Pride in Oldham Awards and three National Awards at The Family Arts Festival, including Best Family Event.

Beginning in September 2018, a weekly arts award session will run at the theatre on a Tuesday afternoon from 4-5pm where young people can explore an art form of their choice whilst working towards their Bronze or Silver certification.
The theatre opens up to young people each year for a glimpse into the workings of a producing theatre. This is a chance to meet staff from all departments and get an insight into how they operate on a day-to-day basis through talks and practical workshops whilst also having the opportunity to work on and watch a main stage production at the theatre.
Keep an eye out for the dates of this year’s Work Experience Weeks.
