About us
Islington Community Theatre makes original theatre with young people aged 11-19.
At the heart of our work is the idea that we best serve the young people we work with, as both theatre-makers and people, through a long-term commitment that means many of our members will be part of our work for up to ten years.  
We select the young people we work with in collaboration with teachers and youth workers, to identify those who will most benefit from the opportunity to work with us - and who will thus, we think, make the most surprising, innovative and powerful theatre.
About the company

Since 2008 Islington Community Theatre has worked with thousands of young people across Islington, providing them with opportunities that would otherwise simply not exist.

We create space for young people and the best theatre-makers to collaborate, explore and learn together through nationally acclaimed, innovative and free to access projects and productions.

We help our participants gain essential personal, social and vocational skills, understanding of the world around them and appreciation for the arts.  We have a unique recruitment process: working with teachers and youth workers to ensure that every participant is offered a place based on how much they will benefit.

Our work has a massive impact on the young people that we work with: building confidence and self-esteem and helping them develop relationships that transcend their normal cultural groups and postcodes.  We help our young people gain places in college, University and Drama School as well as jobs and apprenticeships.

Our young people say that being in ICT is like being part of a family. We have a ten year plan for all of our members and we care for them as individuals who have an important contribution to make to the company, to the arts and to society as a whole.
