Workshops

YPT offers a wide selection of workshops for schools. For students, these include Specialized Workshops, Companion Workshops, Residencies, and Pre- and Post-Show Workshops. These workshops are designed to provide students with a deeper understanding of a particular theme or arts practice, enhance their theatre-going experience, and provide them the opportunity to actively engage in creative drama. All of our workshops are active, hands-on sessions. YPT engages professional facilitators of the highest quality who have extensive experience working with young people using a diversity of artistic approaches. These workshops can take place either at YPT or at the participating school.

Customized Workshops

Get in touch and we’ll see how we can work together to create something special for everyone involved.
