What they say about us…

In 1997, an assessor from the National Theatre saw the production of Asleep Under the Dark Earth which was subsequently invited for performance at the Cottesloe.
In his report he said:

“This is clearly a well organised and popular youth theatre with a tradition of innovative staging (and) mutual support . . . a really happy company inspired and encouraged by strong direction. 

There is a strong sense of the company’s identity and tradition. A preference for simple and striking images and a respect for the ensemble over the individual. This style has emerged over years and there is a sense of continuity in the return of former members, some now drama students, to watch and support. Commitment is clearly not a problem. I was struck by their confidence and belief in the company above and beyond a single show. 

They expect high standards of themselves and clearly achieve them.”
