East Ayrshire Youth Theatre

East Ayrshire Youth Theatre (EAYT) is looking for new talent to join their ‘wicked’ musical journey to the heart of the Emerald City in an exciting new theatrical experience.


After a successful run of Oliver! In the Palace Theatre, EAYT will embark on a magical journey down the yellow brick road as they present a brand new version of The Wizard of Oz in the Grand Hall, in April 2018.


EAYT is driven by excellence and access where young people feel comfortable and learn through positive experiences. The young people are given the opportunity to develop skills and learn from experienced tutors where they work in a professional manner as young actors and theatre makers would in a professional theatre environment.


EAYT aims to give the broadest range of high quality theatre experiences in a positive and supportive environment so that young people can develop their skills not only in theatre and performance but also in terms of communication and creativity. On a weekly basis, over 100 young people from Kilmarnock and the surrounding areas take part in rehearsals that culminate in two musical theatre productions that take place within the Palace Theatre and Grand Hall Complex.


Productions are directed by Craig Glover, assisted by Tabby Fallace. Both Craig and Tabby have worked with professional theatre companies as well as developing work for young people’s theatre. In addition, the young people work closely with a local choreographer and musical director – both professional practitioners working in the industry.


EAYT sessions take place in the Grand Hall, Kilmarnock, and run for three terms (which follow school term times). Each term will cost £35 for Mini EAYT (5-7 years) and £90 for the Junior (8-11 years) and Senior EAYT (12-18 years).
