About Devised Theatre

Devised Theatre is the term often used to describe theatre that is created by a group of individuals. From September to June, participants will go through the process of creating plays from scratch for our January production, and our annual THYT One-Act Festival in June. We do this through a variety of activities and exercises, which can include:

  • Improvisation

  • Theatre Games

  • Working with Professional Playwrights

  • Brainstorming

  • And Play. We just be silly and see what comes up as a result.


This program is designed to give your youth a Total Theatre Experience. Modern theatre requires a team of people, and the theatre industry rewards those with a diverse set of theatre skills. This program will teach industry standards in theatre creation, which includes acting, writing, directing, stage management, design, and running crew.
