Be part of the act! Help us make an impact!

For 55 years ATYP have used theatre experiences to make young people thrive, helping them find their voice and in doing so helping to build confidence, resilience and empathy. ATYP continues to nurture todays young Australian who will become the next generation of creators, thinkers and leaders.

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 and many more other creatives, provided over 120 scholarships, and made accessible many more life-changing theatre experiences for thousands of young people around the country.

Our impact on young people is compelling. Last year, ATYP commissioned research a special report to evaluate the impact of its theatre programs surveying over 1,200 ATYP participants, parents, alumni and other stakeholders. The research from of the ATYP Impact Evaluation found that youth theatre can positively impact mental wellbeing (94 per cent), reduce anxiety, build resilience and skills which benefit STEM learning, irrespective of a young person's career aspirations or career. 

"ATYP has taught me the amazing power of both putting myself entirely on the line, and being able to move through that with resilience. Theatre teaches you how to open up, share your feelings but stay strong through that."  ATYP Participant
