The National Theatre has created the Young People’s Stage, which consists of performances, activities and workshops designed especially for children and young adults.
The initiative is intended to strengthen the work that the National Theatre has been doing for many years in this area, and highlights the importance of theatre education as an essential part of the lives of young people.
Our goal remains quality theatre that will be exciting, stimulating and transformative. The Young People’s Stage is aimed at children and young adults of all ages, whatever their geographical or cultural background, and hopes to engage in a real dialogue with them. Through its productions and a wide range of workshops, it takes a creative approach to entertaining and educating the audiences and the citizens of tomorrow, inspiring and motivating them to explore themselves and the world around them through theatre.
At the same time, it is aimed at the educational community, with a series of training workshops as well as educational material that accompanies productions and help teachers to explore the issues and ideas raised by the plays.
Its priority is to respond creatively to contemporary needs and the particular issues of our time through a series of activities which use theatrical technique and expression as an instrument of real social intervention.
