Northland Youth Theatre is a not-for-profit charitable trust set up to provide training for the young people of Northland in theatre craft. We deliver our training across a range of disciplines to young people from age 9 to 25 years.
We are celebrating our 31st birthday this year and are proud to be the oldest Youth Theatre Company in New Zealand. Northland Youth Theatre has worked with many talented young people in this time and created a vast amount of theatre.
Currently we offer Drama classes every week during term time and deliver workshops during the school holidays.
As well as our classes and holiday workshops we provide several performance opportunities for our students. These range from fully produced and staged devised and/or scripted work, To class showings at the end of term, and participation in, and development of public events throughout the year.
NYT students get to work with a range of professional practitioners throughout the year. During term time they are looked after by our resident tutors.
For our public productions we engage the services of other trained and practicing professionals to work with our young casts.
