"We don’t feel like ‘young artists’, but artists in our own right."


This unique opportunity gives young people aged 15-25 the chance to produce, fundraise, market, design, project manage and perform in their own production with the help and guidance of the Spinning Wheel team. It's a rare chance for young people to take full control of every aspect of a project providing a vital, realistic experience of working in the world of theatre.


“Wow! What an adventure and experience! Thank you so so much for what has been the most incredible experience. When signing up for this project never in a million years did I think I would learn half as much as I have! Youth Takeover really is the most unique, crazy and incredible thing. I feel so blessed to have been able to be a part of it!”


“I LOVE Youth Takeover! Such amazing people, a brilliant experience and a fantastic wide range of opportunities.”
