Lachlan Houen

Lachlan Houen Digital Communications Coordinator

With a passion for all things theatre related and a quickly developing love for the theatre and arts community in Canberra, Lachlan is thrilled to be taking on the role of Digital Communications Coordinator with Canberra Youth Theatre.

Lachlan’s work in the residential space at ANU has assisted his development in administrative and marketing domains, previously overseeing the Interhall Arts Committee and currently presiding over the resident committee of one of ANU’s residential halls. This experience has allowed him to ably work within marketing campaigns and assist Young Artists and Workshop Artists in the context of our educational programs.  

Within the theatre scene, Lachlan has immersed himself quite heavily since coming to Canberra for university in 2021, starring in productions of Love and Information and When the Rain Stops Falling (National University Theatre Society), and directing two productions at the ANU (The Laramie Project and An Ideal Husband). In 2023, Lachlan is excited to be co-directing a production of Mr Burns: A Post Electric Play and working with the Canberra Youth Theatre team to involve as many Young Artists in the company’s programs as possible.

Lachlan’s ultimate goal whilst working at Canberra Youth Theatre is to support young creatives on their artistic journey while pursuing his own artistic passions, a goal made possible by the incredible team at Canberra Youth Theatre.
