Islington Youth Theatre were runners up at the Spirt of London Awards 2009
The bulk of Islington Community Theatre's work is created through our four young companies - comprising around 150 permanent members aged 10-19.
We also run ad hoc and bespoke projects according to local need, interest and in response to specific commissions and are developing a bespoke training and mentoring programme for young theatre-makers aged 19-25 who have previously been involved in our work.
All of our company members are offered their places on the basis of how much they'll benefit from being involved. We work in collaboration with schools, colleges and other local agencies to reach people who would never normally become involved in theatre projects.
It is really important to us that our companies are made up of young people from the widest possible backgrounds.
