reached its conclusion on May 20th, with the launch of the Centre Stage +10
report. A huge thanks to all the youth theatre leaders, members and
stakeholders who gave their time, thoughts and energy to the project.
A copy of the report has been sent out to all youth theatres and is also
available to download from the Research section.

We hope you find the report useful and hope it will continue to stimulate
discussion on all aspects of youth theatre practice. Do get in touch if
there are any issues or findings that you would like to discuss further.

research! NAYD would love to hear from anyone interested in carrying out
research or evaluation within their own youth theatre.
Many thanks again!
