Theatre for young audiences is underrated, undervalued and one of the most inventive areas of theatrical exploration. It is marginalised because of its audience in most countries in the world. Theatre for young audiences is everything good theatre should be: demanding of its audience, sophisticated in its expression, inventive in its form and strong in its concepts.
Theatre for young audiences needs champions who are in every festival, every venue and every community, staging work because children are a vital part of the whole arts audience.
In 50 years theatre for young audiences will be embedded in our daily lives, transformed by the tools of communication, moving with the zeitgeist, leading change.
