The Johnstone Phoenix Youth Theatre was formed in 1993 by Margaret Carmichael. Margaret, the daughter of Tom Carmichael, who founded Johnstone Phoenix Theatre Group in 1963, saw an opportunity to bring musical theatre into the lives of the local kids after there was a great level of interest for the youth involvement in one of the seni0r section shows. Following in her Dad's footsteps, Margaret started up the club's Youth section and it has been thriving ever since.
Many of our past members have moved on to; extend their involvement in amateur theatre with the Johnstone Phoenix Senior club and other societies. Some have even gone on to pursue careers in theatre and television. This proving that the experience gained from the club certainly can impact on later life.
A lot of our members have also commented that althought their career may be in other fields, the skills learned at the Youth Theatre have been of great use. We find that during their time with us, our members grow in confidence, learn valuable social skills, expand their knowledge of musical theatre and meet friends.
