Ryde Youth Theatre

Ryde Youth Theatre is a program delivered by the City of Ryde in partnership with Shopfront Arts Co-op.

Ryde Youth Theatre offers a space for Young People aged 8-26 to explore creativity, build confidence, learn new skills and make friends.

Through weekly workshops, we will delve into various aspects of drama and performance, with a focus on collaboration and developing ideas for performance. Together we will create an original work to be performed to the public in October each year.

Workshops are facilitated by established practising artists from Shopfront Arts Co-op, with experience in various disciplines including playwriting, devising, film and movement. No previous experience is necessary.

Key Information

Our 8 - 14’s group runs on a Monday evening from 5pm to 7pm

Our 14+ group runs on a Tuesday evening from 6.30pm to 9pm

All sessions run from the West Ryde Hall at 1A Station St, West Ryde.

In 2021, RYT will be offering Pay What You Can on all workshops. This means you can nominate an amount to pay for your enrolment – our recommended price of $75 is what it would take for us to cover our costs.
