Are you a theatre company?
Are you a school?
Do you know about ASSITEJ SA?
Do you want to tour your work extensively to young people in your area?
Do you want excellent theatre shows to come to your schools to ignite your learners passion for the Arts?
Theatre companies and artists should sign up with ASSITEJ SA.
The Theatre4Youth site serves as a facilitating bridge between theatre and education, making it easy for schools to book excellent productions for their learners, and for theatre companies to tour productions to schools. It moderates the quality of the theatre presented in schools through a participatory feedback system, serves as a space for local artists to develop collaborations with communities as resident artists, and assists theatre companies in making their work more relevant and accessible to schools.

Emily Jade was no ordinary child…
She was shy and timid but adventurous and wild.
She was odd-looking, unpopular but also quite smart,
Despite failing Science, Geography, Maths, History & Art.
You see, Emily could not stay focused – a major flaw –
She never stopped daydreaming – not ever, at all.
Theatre4Youth has been funded by the National Arts Council of South Africa, the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund and the International Fund for Cultural Diversity of UNESCO.
Theatre4Youth is a venture of ASSITEJ South Africa. ASSITEJ South Africa is a network organisation for people working with or interested in theatre for young audiences, associated to ASSITEJ International (an organisation for theatre for children and young people based in nearly 100 countries world-wide). We believe that every child has the right to experience high-quality theatre designed especially for them, and to explore imaginative and creative interpretations of the world around them, through the arts.
