Young Critics

Add your voice to the conversation about the work appearing on our stages.

Young Critics is a new opportunity for those interested in watching, critically discussing, and reviewing theatre. This program will develop the skills and elevate the voices of some of the most passionate young theatre-lovers in our community.

  • Attend monthly workshops with Artistic Director Luke Rogers, and leading professional critics.
  • Learn how to critically analyse, discuss, and creatively respond to work.
  • Attend a range of performance events with free or discounted tickets.
  • Write and publish reviews and articles that critically reflect on theatre-making in Canberra.
  • Lead Q&A discussion events for Canberra Youth Theatre productions.
  • Be encouraged to develop your own platforms to share your views, such as videos, podcasts, and other publications.
