Strange Town Young Company (Ages 18 – 25)

Are you interested in theatre? Keen on developing your skills as a performer, writer, director, designer or backstage? Have you had experience as a member of a youth theatre, or of drama in general, and are you looking to build on it? Or are you hoping to go to drama school in the near future? If you would like to join a group of like-minded people, then why not come along?

Strange Town Young Company is for 18-25s who have a strong interest in theatre and who are possibly thinking of taking up a career in it.  It is also for those who simply want to develop their skills as actors, writers, directors and designers.

We write our own material and perform in Edinburgh venues. The company meets at Out of the Blue throughout the week. For more info, send an email to info@strangetown.org.uk or call Steve on 0131 629 0292.

  • Covid-19 restrictions

    Edinburgh is in COVID Protection Level 4 with current restrictions essentially returning us to a position similar to the lockdown of last March.

    Our buildings will consequently be temporarily closed to the public until further notice, but we very much hope to see you again in the not too distant future.

    Stay safe and well.

  • Donate

    Over the course of 2021 Out of the Blue will continue to offer opportunities for artists and members of the community to learn, participate and earn income.

    We use the space we have developed in 6 buildings in Edinburgh for studios, workshops, classes, projects, exhibitions, social enterprises, events, clubs, music making, markets, a cafe and more.

    Our all year round activity helps create the culture of the city, supporting the local economy and having positive social impact for the thousands of individuals and organisations we work with.

    We would humbly accept a financial donation, however small, in support of our work.
