A Message From Our Directors

For the first time ever, every single production being presented during our performances has been written by one of our participants. Over the past few seasons we have set out to establish ourselves as a devised theatre company with a Total Theatre approach. Simply put, our aim is that everything that appears on our stage will be written, directed, designed, performed, and stage managed by our participants. 

The 4th Annual THYT One-Act Festival also marks our last performance in the Nickle studio (for the time-being) as we move on up to using the Memorial Centre Main Stage for our 2023/24 season. We are so excited to perform on the Main Stage, and aim to once again present a show using only plays written by THYT participants or alumni. 

Thank you, on behalf of all of us at Tree House Youth Theatre, for your continued support!

Cheers,

Albertus Koett I Artistic Director

Nicole Leal I Associate Artistic Director

Braden Guido I Technical Director
