About the Lieder Youth Theatre Company
About The Youth Theatre
The Lieder Youth Theatre Company is a very special and unique Goulburn community organisation providingregional and isolated youth with recreational and training opportunities in the performing arts.

The Lieder Youth Theatre Company has emerged over the years as a major training ground and public platform for local youth with a passion to express themselves through the arts and explore career options in the performing arts.

The Lieder Youth Theatre Company undertakes to present at least one major performance project each year as well as perform at many of the major outdoor entertainment events in Goulburn as stilt walkers, fire-twirlers, acrobats, clowns, face painters and dancers.

The Lieder Youth Theatre Company has evolved out of the Lieder Theatre Company (est. 1891), which provides the focus for the performing arts in and around Goulburn, NSW. While the youth company is actively involved in the main Company's community productions it's primary function is to provide training opportunities and youth specific devised performances for the youth culture within the region.

As well as the regular weekly and holiday workshop programs young people perform in and fulfil backstage production skills training on all the Lieder Theatre Company's mainstage plays.

The Lieder Youth Theatre Company is a subcommittee of the Lieder Theatre Company. It is run by volunteer members of the Lieder Theatre. It occasionally receives funding to employ professional tutors to train & work with the young members on a project by project basis.
