It aims to nurture the talent of writers and composers and foster the development of young artists through mentorship and education programs.

MAIN OBJECTIVES

ARTISTIC OBJECTIVES

Theatre 20 produces work with creative integrity and honest storytelling. Our aim is to be edgy and accessible, evocative and modern, moving and socially relevant. We want to honour the form of musical theatre by creating refreshing productions that fulfill our artists creatively and entertain our audiences completely. Theatre 20 shows are stripped of artifice and focus on the characters and the story. They are both simple and profound.
