Want to meet new people? Discover and develop your creativity? 

We run a programme of dynamic projects co-created with young people, for young people. 


Monday nights from 6pm - 8pm

If you're an actor, MC, spoken word artist or physical theatre performer in the making, then the Ensemble is a place where you will be able to push yourself creatively. All workshops, rehearsals and performances will be BSL interpreted.


Young Company is for young people aged 16 - 21 who want to work creatively and collectively to learn and grow together. Our Young Company come from a range of places and backgrounds to take part in new, inclusive and accessible projects with professional artists. 

If you need one-to-one support please bring someone with you, and get in touch with us to tell us how best we can support your creative adventure. All three stages and our rehearsal and meeting spaces are wheelchair accessible.


Sessions are £5 each and are paid for in half term or full term blocks.

Where Do We Stand? And Where Do We Belong?

In Apr 2018 Young Company staged Where Do We Stand?, a city spectacle illuminating untold stories and unheard voices on what it is to live, work and dream in Newcastle in 2018.

In Apr 2019 they went on to stage Where Do We Belong?, a vibrant view of what global citizenship looks like through the lens of young Europeans finding their place in the world. 

Take a look at the production photos for a taste of each show:
