Corrugated Iron Youth Arts is celebrating the end of 2020 with a circus and drama extravaganza! 

Offering a smorgasbord of live performance, the extravaganza is a platform for young artists to share their work with the public – often for the first time. 

Brown’s Mart:

Thurs 26 - Sat 28 Nov


Acting Up (Thurs):

How do you survive a zombie apocalypse? The participants of Acting Up just might have the answer for you in their a short, scripted piece.


Circus Troupe:

Circus troupe will be presenting a 30min cabaret featuring skipping, aerial, unicycling and clowning.


Drama Ensemble Nightcliff:

Drama Ensemble present Waiting for Phil by Rohan Trollope, an hilarious absurdist comedy where the show has almost begun... or has already... or may never...


Drama Ensemble Palmerston:

Experimental character sketches completely written, devised and performed by the ensemble. We sneak a glimpse of the lives of six young people.

Drama Studio Nightcliff:

DNA by 18-30 Theatre Ensemble:

DNA by Dennis Kelly, a poignant and, sometimes, hilarious tale with a very dark heart. Presented by the 18 – 30 Theatre Ensemble, a group of teenagers find that their cover up of a terrible accident unites them and brings harmony to their otherwise fractious lives.


Improvisation for Adults:

Enjoy watching low-key, unscripted live theatre? Expect the unexpected as this new group tries out their improv skills for the first time on stage together.
