Our Philosophy Surrey Youth Theatre Company:
1. To create and produce innovative quality theatre for a multi-generational audience.
2. Foster a lifelong love of the theatre in our participants, our audience and the community.
3. Expose children to ideas and imagery that reflect their own experiences and challenge their own understanding of the world in which they live.
Sytco was founded by Susan Pendleton because of a growing need for professional family theatre in the South Surrey /White Rock community. By producing high quality theatre as South Surrey is rapidly growing with younger families, Sytco has become a valuable presence in the community. Sytco aims to engage and inspire children, to produce theatre that reaches beyond the stage.
How are we a Company?
As credited to theatre troupes in the 16th and 17th centuries in England, we call ourselves a Company. (Although, we do not have a patron!)
The actors audition to become a member of the Company and the productions are chosen once the Company is in place. The initial weeks are spent on getting to know one another and bond as a group working equally as one. The strength of the Company then helps to dictate the production.
