“ATYP is unique in its focus on empowering children to create and tell their own stories. As a result, the kids shine.”

- Parent of an ATYP participant

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.
Our impact is compelling.
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.
