Powerhouse Youth Theatre (PYT), Fairfield, is Western Sydney’s only professional theatre company for young people aged 14-26 years.

We champion diversity and young people, developing the next generation of artists from Western Sydney by producing and presenting innovative contemporary performance and socially-engaged artistic experiences.

We are an exceptional hub for cultural exchange and dialogue connecting Western Sydney to the rest of Australia.

Our main objectives are:

  • To create innovative and critical new performance works
  • To transform young people’s lives when they discover their ability to lead, and create, and their power to shape the world for the better
  • To engage with the diverse cultures of our local community
  • To develop the next generation of outstanding artists from Western Sydney.
  • To create opportunities for social and cultural innovation across local and national audiences.
  • To provide opportunities for young people of Western Sydney to engage in the performing arts

Our programs have diverse entry points and opportunities for artists to research, explore and build skill levels across all levels of cultural performance practice.
