Theatre Works strongly believes that children and young adults should have equal opportunities to express their creativity, develop their social and emotional intelligence, and connect with the world as their authentic selves.
In 2022, Theatre Works presents two powerful, relevant and vital performances for all audiences, upholding the values that Theatre Works was built on as we aspire to encourage more young people to discover, create and love theatre.
Both works feature on the 2022 VCE Playlist.
