Youth Connection Theatre Company is an amateur theatre company based at Chester-le-Street in County Durham. It was formed 30 years ago, from senior students, past students and other members of the community. The group still has the same aims; to enable as many young people as possible to experience a wide variety of Drama, and have fun along the way. Credits to date include performances at the Edinburgh Festival, tours of France, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary and Russia, participation in a major International Drama Festival and performances at several major professional London Theatres including, the Royal National.

We rehearse at Ouston Community Centre (DH2 1RJ) and usually perform about two to three productions a year. This is normally at Christmas and summer. However, if you look at our 'past productions' you can see that we do other things and 'get about a bit'. Please contact us if you require more details.

Many members of the group are now working in TV and professional theatre in several capacities; acting, designing and technical crew.

The group is entirely self funding and is grateful for any contribution whether it is participation or audience support - or even money!
