Bush Young Companies

We currently deliver two Young Companies with local young people. 

Bush Young Companies are free for young people. They reflect Bush’s commitment to local life and developing the next generation of artists.

This August, the Bush Young Companies takes over the Holloway Theatre for two brand new productions, HORIZON written by Kwame Owusu and performed by 14 -17 Young Company and ANTHEM devised by the 18-25 Young Company and Katie Greenall.

Actor and writer Malachi Kirby is the Bush Young Companies’ advocate. He supports the companies and helps expand the skills of the Young Artists.

Both Young Companies are led by Young Company Coordinator Katie Greenall, alongside the Bush Theatre’s Artistic Director Lynette Linton and Associate Artistic Director Daniel Bailey.

‘This is a monumental but necessary evolution of our theatre. Lynette, myself and the Bush team are excited to be forming these companies alongside the Young Artists. We are so inspired by their contribution and their artistry, we knew we had to make a legacy of it. This is just the beginning.’ – Daniel Bailey, Bush Theatre Associate Director.
