Islington Youth Theatre
Islington Youth Theatre is our company for young people aged 12-16.
The 30 IYT members work together and with professional theatre-makers to create innovative ensemble led theatre that has collaboration, imagination and exploration at its heart.
Since 2008 the company has collaborated with more than 50 professional theatre-makers. They have performed in numerous productions including at venues like Soho Theatre and the National Theatre.
IYT was where Islington Community Theatre started: first as a small after-school youth theatre group from 2002-2008 and then as an integral part of ICT when it was formed in 2008.
Members of IYT are recruited through in-depth annual recruitment workshops in schools and youth centres across Islington. Our focus is on finding those young people who will most benefit from being part of the company and we work closely with teachers and youth workers to involve young people who would never otherwise have become involved in theatre.
