Oxford Playhouse puts young people at the centre of what we do, and platform their passion and voices to direct the future of our theatre.

Whether as a participant in a one-off Masterclass, or as a regular member of our term-time Youth Theatre and Young Company groups, Oxford Playhouse offers opportunities for children, teenagers and young adults to learn and hone their skills in supportive and collaborative environments.
