MAKING CONTACT: OUR TRANSFORMATION Find out more

Contact Young Company (CYC) is Contact’s renowned, Manchester Theatre Award-winning young ensemble. CYC is made up of young performers, actors, dancers, musicians, stand-up comedians, poets and MCs.

Each year, the company creates brand new professional standard shows in collaboration with major national and international artists, such as Forced Entertainment, Lies Pauwels, Stacey Makishi and Slung Low. Shows are premiered in Manchester, and often then tour nationally to leading venues and festivals.

Auditions are held every few months. Please keep your eyes on this page and Twitter for these announcements.

    ‘Contact Young Company continues to set a precedent for what can be done when young performers are treated as professionals.’
