Youth Theatre = Extraordinary FUTURES

We believe that youth theatre should be extraordinary, just as engaging, entertaining and significant as a professional production. Many of our leading Australian artists and cultural leaders have developed their skills and networks in youth theatre.  It is from this wellspring of creativity and collaboration that the next generation of performers, directors, writers, innovators and entrepreneurs will emerge. Directed by professional theatre makers, each Perseverance Street youth production mirrors industry approaches to rehearsal. This results in innovative, visually stunning theatre that showcases the phenomenal young talent of this region.  Theatre to remember and be proud of.

2024 YOUTH Productions


Perseverance Street are thrilled to present The Formal, by Sue Murray. Entry to youth theatre productions is by audition or invitation. 

AUDITIONS: Friday, March 1, 2024

Ages: 14 – 19

This witty comedy explores all of the trials and tribulations of school formal. Set in the 1980’s, the dresses, the drama and the dilemmas still prevail. Remember the big hair, big shoulder pads and puffy frocks. Well the shocks and frocks are back!

Performance Dates: 18 – 23 of June.
