Young Theatricals (YTs) is Ipswich Little Theatre Society’s drama group for teens, 13 – 18 years old. The group meets on Wednesday evenings, 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, in the Jean Pratt Building. For any information regarding Young Theatricals in 2024 and beyond, please contact the team at

Run by Directors Kate Hoepner, Mack Groves, Aaron Evans, Sam Hoepner and Jess Pitman, YTs aims to teach students performance skills and provides opportunities to showcase their talents throughout the year. Students will learn about character development, how to create and manipulate mood and tension in their performances, vocal skills, physical characteristics and expression, and more!

Young Theatricals is operated as a free-form, safe environment for teenagers to explore and express their creativity through theatre.

We perform two productions a year – in 2024 we will be putting on a full length production in late July and a showcase variety show at end of Term 3. In Term 4 we focus on specific topics guided by student interests, these might be accents, conveying emotions, stage craft etc.

Places for 2024 are limited. If you would like to register for our waitlist, contact us at
