About Scottish Youth Theatre

Unlocking the creative energies of young people in Scotland through theatre

Our Vision is to drive a movement in Scotland which is internationally renowned for inspiring young people to be ground breaking individuals who value the arts and are empowered by their creativity in every aspect of their lives.

Our Artistic Ambition is to cultivate the next generation of Scottish theatre makers, innovators and activists, inspiring them to experiment, take risks; to discuss, debate, question and challenge; to learn from their successes and failures and create ground breaking life-affirming theatre here in Scotland.


As Scotland’s national youth theatre, we deliver programmes across the country and bring young people together from the far corners of the nation. Working in partnership with like-minded organisations and collaborating with Scotland’s dynamic theatre practitioners, we support aspiring and emerging artists, improving their routes into further learning and the professional industry.
Our venue in Glasgow city centre acts as a social enterprise to help generate funds for the national youth theatre programme. The venue has its own youth arts programme, hosts events run by external hirers and has ambitions to grow a wider cultural programme for all ages. Visit Venue Programme or Venue Hire in the menu above to find out more.

Participation across the National Programme is free. Find out more here
