Why EYT?


When EYT arrived in Brussels back in 1999, there was no such thing as English-speaking youth theatre in the city. Young people's only options were to join French- or Dutch-language youth theatre groups or audition for the few parts available to them in the English amateur-dramatics groups. For nearly 20 years, EYT has made youth theatre available in the heart of Brussels, and influenced a radical change in Brussels' English theatre landscape.


EYT is a member of the National Association of Youth Theatres, and is the first and only youth theatre in Brussels to be recognised by the international association. EYT is also the only youth theatre group to be regularly invited to take part in FEATS, a Europe-wide amateur theatre festival, and has won several awards at the competition while competing with adult groups.


All of our teachers are trained and qualified in the field of drama, and all have professional credits in the worlds of theatre, TV or film. Our founder, Lynne Vaughan, has run several professional theatres in the UK, and the teachers' credits include working on professional shows in the West End, professional film sets and TV companies. The teachers' training includes accreditation from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), and we constantly seek to update our skills with contemporary practice and training. Other specialist areas include costume and prop design, creative writing, film-making, editing and direction.
