Young Company

Caithness Young Company


Caithness Young Company is an innovative and introductory project offering in­-depth training for aspiring performers, directors, technicians and writers into the world of professional theatre.


Led by Lyth Arts Centre, the programme of activity and work created by the young people will form part of our annual programme at the arts centre, including the Lyth Family Festival and our Summer and Winter Exhibitions. This is the first time in its 40 year history that LAC will offer such meaningful opportunities for local young people to engage with theatre and the creative industries.  Caithness Young Company will be free to access plus transport support. Young people will learn new techniques and work in collaboration with some of the most exciting professional artists in LAC’s programme. You must be aged 12+ to join Caithness Young Company


Sessions will include

• Opportunities to make, watch and learn more about theatre through masterclasses and free tickets

• Production opportunities including a devised show involving every member of the Young Company in every aspect of producing and making the show

• Mentoring from LAC staff

• Unique experiences to share work as part of professional shows and events at LAC
