Youth Project 2022
Every year we run the Summer Youth Project. Guided by a dedicated team and a professional director, up to 100 young people create and perform a high quality show in just two weeks. Children aged 10 - 20 years play major roles and provide support backstage. So if acting is not your forte you can still take part. The Summer Youth Project is two weeks, full time.
