Your First Step To
Professional Theatre Experience

Youth Theatre Circle (YTC) is a platform for young actors, aged 14-19 yrs to access drama-training and performance opportunities with Delhi's foremost theatre group, the Actor Factor Theatre Company and get assessed by Trinity College London. YTC members will meet every Saturday for 24 weeks and work on a classical text to prepare a full-length play produced by Actor Factor. In the process the members will go through rigorous training modules, carefully designed to take you step-by-step to cope up with the demands of professional theatre.
YTC reflects the intensity and discipline of professional drama training, so we require a firm commitment from applicants to attend the weekly sessions.
