About this cause
Inverclyde Youth Theatre (also known as Kayos) helps local young people aged 5 - 21. Kayos provides training in the performing arts. We also provide performance opportunities in venues throughout Inverclyde. Objectives: The presentation, promotion and organisation of musicals, plays, comedies and concerts. The development of the linguistic, literary and creative skills of the young people of the local area. The provision of experience of practical theatre work to members and the opportunity to work with professional theatre personnel. Kayos helps to develop empathy, self-confidence, team work, problem solving and leadership skills. Kayos allows its members to be part of the management committee and therefore takes ownership of the day to day running, fundraising and various other projects.
