Founded in 1968, Youtheatre’s main goals and artistic objectives are stated in its current mandate:
Youtheatre’s aim is to engage its audience through compelling theatre which provokes, questions, challenges and entertains. Our major area of focus is the creation, development and production of new works for young people by the finest Canadian playwrights.
Each year, the company produces three works for local audiences and frequently tours nationally and internationally. Since 2000, Youtheatre has also been producing productions in French for young adults.
Youtheatre has performed at many important venues in Canada including the National Arts Centre, Lorraine Kimsa Theatre for Young People, Grand Theatre, Imperial Theatre, Manitoba Theatre for Young People, Théâtre la Catapulte and Théâtre la Seizième in Vancouver.
On an international level, Youtheatre has performed at The Birmingham Rep, Unity Theatre, Sherman Theatre and The Grand Theatre in Swansea, Wales.
The Canada Council has recognised Youtheatre as a leader among Canadian theatre companies producing work for young audiences, citing the company’s “achievements in maintaining high production standards” as well as, “the depth of its commitment to developing new work and original voices”.
