Young Company 11-15 is led by John McCraw, our Creative Learning Director at Pegasus.
Pegasus Young Companies are at the heart of our activity and integral to the creative and artistic process at Pegasus. Each year the Young Companies (11-15s & 16-25s) create their own full production in response to a brief set by our Youth Board.
We don’t hold auditions and we welcome anyone with the commitment, enthusiasm and passion to be part of a young theatre company.

Join Pegasus Young Company 11-15s to learn new skills and perfect old ones, with a focus toward performing an exhilarating piece of contemporary theatre. Bring your creativity, energy and an open mind, as we take you on an exciting journey from behind the scenes to centre stage. All levels of skill and experience are welcome.

Young Company 11-15 previous productions
The Chrysalids – July 2019
In a place of absolute conformity, a group of young people are growing up in fear, hoping that nobody will ever know of their unique powers. Governed by the laws of purity, will their differences be accepted, or will they be shunned forever?
The Chrysalids is inspired by Pegasus’ 2018/19 theme of Fired Up, Fearless and Free.
“The actors were uniformly alert and well-drilled by director John McCraw, and for many of them this will have been their first – but surely not their last – stab at a full-scale production.”

Manifesto – July 2018
An exam hall. An uprising. Who will pass the test?
Manifesto is inspired by Pegasus’ 2017/18 theme of Carnival of Resistance and the work of the Pegasus Young Company 11-15s.
