For over a decade Persephone Theatre has provided training at the highest calibre for a dedicated group of young people who are serious about pursuing a career in the theatre.

The Persephone Theatre Young Company is both a class and a theatre company for young performers between the ages of 14 and 19 years who are interested in pursuing a career in the arts. The Young Company students have the opportunity to thrive in a classroom setting while also getting to study with professional theatre artists. For the 2024 /25 Season, we will be moving to a different model in which all students must be enrolled in Term 1 in order to take Term 2.

“Young Company has done a fantastic job in meeting my expectations and providing more. I have been blessed with the opportunity to get to know so many incredible and talented humans. Everyone supports everyone which creates a positive environment for learning and experimenting new things. Through young company I have gained confidence in my abilities and explored different versions of myself. Being with others who truly care about what they do has helped me grow as an artist. For those who are looking for guidance and growth in theatre or perhaps looking to pursue something in the industry Young Company is a wonderful experience.”
– Alida Schulhauser, Young Company 2022-23 Student
