ALL ABOUT US

Young Actors Theatre is a community of 700 people...

YATI Values

OPEN * ENABLING * CREATIVE * INSPIRING * PASSIONATE
YATI (Yattie) believes that the arts can benefit everyone, and that money should not be a barrier to participation and training. YATI is supported by like-minded individuals and organisations to keep its classes at the cheapest possible level.

What does YATI do?

YATI offers over 54 hours each week of high-quality but affordable classes in drama, singing and dance. In school holidays we offer a range specialist workshops and also stage full-scale professional productions. We represent young actors from our classes to gain professional work in the international performing arts industry.  We encourage exploration and creativity, nurture talent and help develop careers in the performing arts. We help build confidence and life skills for all our members.
