IYT holiday

stage CAMPs

Over the past 5 years, IYT have developed a reputation for providing young performers a top level, full 5 x day immersion into the theatre making process and for challenging kids to perform at their best in a fun, open minded and freely expressive environment. And, the end result is a SHOW that will leave you spellbound.With professional level production and industry tutors from NIDA, WAAPA and STC, plus the convenience of a central inner west drop off/pick up location at Tramsheds in Forest Lodge, school holidays have never been so cool...

"To put on a show in such a short time and producing such a high quality performance , blew us away. What a talented group of young actors, singers and dancers"

On the first day, we divide kids into groups according to their age, experience and interests, with approx. 10 to 12 in each group. Each group is immediately launched into casting, and a rotation of rehearsals working with some of Sydney’s leading professional youth directors from NIDA and WAAPA and musical theatre singers and choreographers. The kids will brainstorm ideas for the plot of their play, develop the scenes, learn a song and dance routine and rehearse it all up for an incredible performance on the final night. The Disney characters and storylines will be fractured to create original stories and to make sure every child has a great character to play and their individual talents and abilities shine throughout the show. We’ll even get the kids who like a visual art focus to create our show poster and program. You’ll be amazed at what they will achieve in just 5 days! Inner West Theatre is famous for our holiday stage camps with over 80% of kids coming back to do them again. We NEVER do the same thing twice and whether kids are starting out or experience performers, we keep them on their toes every time. It’s a HUGE amount of effort and fun and teaches kids to build character, confidence, creativity, collaboration and communication skills that are invaluable throughout life. They also make like minded friends that can last throughout the years.   


“We’ve been to most of the drama camps in Sydney and this was the best by far”

If this is your first experience with us, IYT is a family of young actors, writers, directors, singers, visual storytellers and musicians where each individual feels valued and respected for their unique contribution and abilities. We get to know every child or teen and invest in their creative journey and emotional wellbeing over all else. 

So whether you are an IYT company member or not, you will experience a week of invaluable training with NIDA, Bell Shakespeare and WAAPA acting, singing or dancing coaches and advance your professional skills.
