Hayley Clark introduces us to Northland Youth Theatre. It was the first Youth Theatre established in New Zealand and it is now 30 years old. It covers a wide range of theatrical opportunities for youth aged from 9 to 21. Hayley also shares information about their major shows along with examples of this year's productions. Shows, which are unique and are purely a result of the youth's own voice. The incorporation of local stories is a key vision and one that is focussed on. A focus which is reflected in Northland Youth Theatre's productions.
