Australian Theatre for Young People

ATYP Production Support

ATYP challenges writers to tell stories that capture the interests and imaginations of modern Australian young people.  This is the kernel with which we create brave new productions that set higher benchmarks for youth theatre globally.

Through our productions program each year, ATYP aims to:
  • build a canon of work that is performed by schools and youth theatres around the country for years to come;
  • generate productions with the capacity to be realised on main stages nationally and internationally;
  • generate production opportunities that support professional artists and young people taking bold creative risks.
ATYP comes from a position of strength with a solid performance track record, strong industry relationships and an expanding profile to deliver these aims. The proof is in our 2014 Season line-up, which brings together exceptional talent from Australian writers, brought to life by outstanding creative teams.

Delivering productions however come at a significant cost. ATYP works hard to acquire government or corporate funding, but funding for the development of new productions is highly competitive, even more so with planned cuts to Australia Council funding.

Giving to support ATYP Productions will demonstrate your commitment to excellence in the performing arts and you'll be supporting the productions that launch the next generation of Australia's professional artists.
