About Us

Theatre Centre is a national touring company that makes bold and relevant shows with and for young people. We commission new work from the most exciting writers and artists and take this work into schools and theatres across the UK. We have recently launched Future Makers, a whole new way of supporting young people as artists, creatives, active citizens and leaders. It is the core of all of our work and is the key to the way we unlock our young people-centred practice in schools and in our national and local communities.

Future Makers brings young people, artists and practitioners together to develop skills, explore big ideas and make work, share skills, explore big ideas and empower young people as artists, creatives, active citizens and leaders. Our work is all about working with and amplifying the voice of young people, to develop agency and empowerment, while telling relevant, authentic, and relatable stories. 

Founded in 1953, we are an acknowledged leader in our field and our practice continues to evolve. Theatre Centre is predominantly a Learning Organisation and has an embedded culture of developing and nurturing everyone involved in or touched by the work.
