The Concordia Youth Theatre is a society founded in 1974. The aim of the Youth Theatre is to encourage younger members to take an active role in the performing side of theatre. Which allows them to develop their skills and eventually perform with an adult society, such as The Tinhatters, The AOS, The New Theatre Players and The Guild. We also try to encourage our members to participate in other areas of theatre including working back-stage, lighting, sound and production design.
Each year, the CYT undertakes a main house musical production in June. Throughout the rest of the season, workshops and events are undertaken to increase the member’s knowledge, experience and talent in the theatre. Professional Directors and coaches are utilised for specific workshops and trips to see professional and amateur theatre productions are arranged.
Entry to the society is by audition, following which an annual membership fee is payable.
Rehearsals for productions take place on Wednesday evenings at 7.30 p.m. and also Sunday afternoons nearer the production run.
