Young & Hungry opens up access to the arts to school-aged children through two innovative programmes. The Y&H Schools Tour visits secondary schools during term 2 each year, with a team of young actors showcasing extracts from New Zealand plays. Meanwhile the Y&H Ambassadors programme invites keen students the opportunity to watch (and review) live theatre across Wellington.
Theatre performed by young people for young people. WHADDARYA? features extracts from Kiwi plays that have the common theme of NZ identity.
Written by some of New Zealand’s best playwrights, performed by emerging actors, and covering themes of family, identity, politics and relationships.
Nominate passionate drama and English students (years 12/13) to take part in the Y&H Ambassadors programme and experience live theatre.
