Scottish Youth Theatre National Ensemble

Support, training and space for young theatre makers ready to take the next step.


Scottish Youth Theatre National Ensemble is a company of exceptionally talented theatre makers aged 18-25 selected from across Scotland. The National Ensemble is a year's commitment: company members spending one weekend a month in locations across Scotland, working with theatre professionals to develop their skills and grow their networks. They then work intensively as a company to create and perform an original piece of theatre for national touring in the summer.
