SYT Productions allows Scottish Youth Theatre to deliver its identified aims:

  • Identifying suitable participants.
  • Providing participants with the opportunity to develop and challenge their skills/talents.
  • Training participants through the performance process.
  • Giving participants the opportunity to showcase their skills on various professional stages throughout Scotland.
  • Affording participants the opportunity of working with leading theatre professionals.
  • Allowing participants to learn, experiment and sometimes fail in a safe working environment.

The personal and professional development of these participants is important to the future of the creative industries in Scotland.  Scottish Youth Theatre is best placed to allow their talents to grow in a safe and professional environment.
