Our Young Theatre Maker Companies are for young people aged between 8 – 25, and are designed to give members the opportunity to experience the excitement, creativity and enjoyment that goes hand in hand with making theatre. The young theatre companies collaborate with our team of theatre professionals to create original performances, gain a deeper understanding of theatre practice and develop lasting friendships.
Every Young Theatre Maker will perform at Hull Truck Theatre during the year and work with our team to experience the enjoyment of professionally led rehearsals and live performances.
Our Young Theatre Makers meet at Hull Truck Theatre on weeknights and weekends.

“I feel like HT has really given me the skills I'd need to pursue a career in the arts and the group leaders clearly have our best interests as performers and people at heart. Also, with Hull being such an exciting city for theatre at the moment, we've had some brilliant opportunities to get involved.” - Arthur Loades.
