Founded in 1976, Carousel Theatre for Young People provides playful, exceptional and accessible theatrical experiences that inspire, involve and educate. Each season approximately 40 000 young people and their families benefit from CTYP’s programming. At Carousel Theatre for Young People we believe that the arts play a vital role in a young person’s development. We envision a community that empowers people to be more imaginative, expressive and engaged. It takes a village to raise a child. CTYP is an integral part of that village.
Carousel Theatre for Young People is the only theatre company in BC to provide a mainstage season of theatre for young audiences. In addition to our mainstage programming for all ages, CTYP also offers drama school classes taught by a trusted faculty of drama educators who are themselves working, professional actors.
