Shaping Futures: Where Young Talent Thrives

As the world’s premier not-for-profit youth arts organisation, we stand at the forefront of nurturing new and emerging talent. Over the years, we’ve empowered thousands of young performers to explore and celebrate their passion for the arts through a wide array of training experiences and performance opportunities available nationwide.

Our role as a producer of live entertainment spans a diverse range of productions, from large-scale arena spectaculars to intimate cabarets, pioneering new works, and reimagining classic musicals. Our commitment to introducing young people to the arts is unwavering, as we bridge the gap between aspiring artists and professional stages, allowing them to develop their skills by performing alongside seasoned professionals to the delight of audiences everywhere.

We offer a comprehensive suite of training experiences for young people, including holiday workshops, weekend master classes, and full-time courses, all meticulously designed to support young artists in their artistic journey.

The path for a young individual with grand creative aspirations can seem daunting, often faced with scepticism about the feasibility of their dreams. However, we believe in dreaming big and providing the support and encouragement needed for young creatives to pursue their dreams with confidence.

More than three decades since our inception, our dedication to producing engaging, high-quality performances and providing enriching, challenging training opportunities for the next generation of performers remains stronger than ever.

From our humble beginnings in downtown Brisbane in 1985, we have grown into the largest youth arts organization globally, known for connecting emerging artists with professional opportunities in some of the most significant productions worldwide.

We are celebrated for our high-quality professional productions that captivate thousands of theatergoers annually and for being a nexus of creativity and professional growth. Here, young artists have the unique opportunity to train and perform alongside some of the most renowned stars in the industry.

Throughout our history, we have presented work at major venues across Australia, bringing to life productions such as “SPAMALOT,” “INTO THE WOODS,” and “THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE,” among others. Our reputation for producing major arena productions, including record-breaking shows like “CATS” and “HAIRSPRAY,” has garnered international acclaim.

Our stage has been graced by numerous well-known artists, providing a platform for both established and emerging talents. We are a cradle of great beginnings, where many acclaimed artists received their first significant exposure.

Over the last 35 years, our growth into the world’s largest not-for-profit youth arts organization underscores our unwavering commitment to creating high-quality performance experiences and offering enriching, challenging training opportunities for the next generation of performers.
