Being young is hard. You’re too old to play Rugrats Mini Golf on PlayStation, but you’re too young to be considered as the CEO for a start-up company. It’s a time when you need a supportive environment where you are free to find your feet and your passion. The Australian Theatre for Young People is such a place. They work to bridge the gap between being a young person without a clue, and being person with a viable career in the arts by building an interactive playwriting community that champions young artists. They’re your best friend through the formative years between your first theatre experience and your first professional production.
