The Grand Opera House Summer Youth Production returns for its eighth year, with The Wizard of Oz. The project runs for two weeks from 15-29 July, and is open to young people aged 10 to 18.

The ethos of the project is to provide young people from all backgrounds from across Northern Ireland with the opportunity to perform on Northern Ireland’s largest and oldest stage, and learn about the skills and discipline required to be part of the performing arts industry.

The project is Northern Ireland’s largest youth theatre production. Its 200 young actors will rehearse for 10 days before giving five public performances on the magnificent Grand Opera House stage. The project is an exciting and fun opportunity for young people to work in a professional Theatre environment.


Auditions are now closed and our cast are ready to start rehearsals. Keep a close eye on this page for further updates.
