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 or call Steve on 0131 629 0292.
