Queensland Theatre is committed to nurturing the next generation of theatre makers, actors and audiences. We offer a variety of opportunities for young people to become more involved with their state theatre company.
Young Artists' Ensemble program
Queensland Theatre's Ensembles program enables motivated, passionate and talented young artists (Years 8–12) to develop their skills with the state's flagship theatre company. Throughout the year Ensemble participants train with the country’s finest theatre professionals, attend Company productions and meet artists from the 2022 Brisbane Season, and engage in a variety of performance opportunities.
