Applications are now open for the YT Directors’ Development Programme, a brand new four-month long career-progression programme for experienced directors of youth theatre. Through the programme participants will be encouraged to take risks in their practice and further their aspirations as theatre-makers.

From August to November 2019, a cohort of up to eight youth theatre directors will come together to:

– view performances
– take part in workshops and discussions
– receive coaching
– develop new projects with young performers
– present brand new works-in-progress

The programme is specifically designed for practitioners who already have a range of youth theatre directing experience, including individuals who may have taken a step back from directing themselves in order to run companies or allow junior colleagues opportunities.

We are pleased to offer this programme with the support of our partners; Edinburgh International Festival, Traverse Theatre and Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society. Participation is free and application is open to all directors who can demonstrate a commitment to youth theatre in Scotland.

Location: Edinburgh City
