As artists you will be contributing to a creative process that uses theatre as a tool to effect social and personal change for young audiences and participants. Our actors are regularly called on to appear at major Perth events, community forums and activities.

This role will suit someone who can establish a strong rapport with young people, likes to work semi-autonomously, and has a strong understanding of current youth issues.
