Seedlings- A Program for Emerging Theatre Companies


Each season CTYP’s Artistic Director, Carole Higgins, selects one emerging theatre company or collective in our community to support, providing the artists involved with 80 hours of free rehearsal space for their project, access to stock costumes and props and artistic advice and support. Theatre groups whose focus is either theatre for young audiences or classical repertoire are given priority
