Young Everyman Playhouse

Young Everyman Playhouse (YEP) is much more than a youth theatre: it mirrors all aspects of our work, embodies our ethos, and puts young people at the heart of everything we do.

Since it was formed in 2012, YEP has established itself as one of the leading youth arts programmes in the country and earlier this year won School of the Year 2015 at The Stage Theatre Awards. It has created professional opportunities for young people whose life chances were limited by circumstance, whose talent lay undiscovered, and who were struggling to find a sense of direction.  It has created joyous theatrical experiences for young people and for wider audiences who are captivated by the passion, skill and ideas of these young theatre-makers.  Already YEP members are applying to drama schools, bidding for funding for their own projects, pressing for work experience among our team, and joining with other groups locally and nationally to programme and create work.

“YEP is probably one of the best highlights of my life… and the change in me, how I have progressed, it has shown me a path that I want to take in my life.”  Young Actor


If you’re aged 11 to 25 then you can get involved. You don’t need experience or to have been to the theatre before, but if you want to give something a try, then YEP is for you.
