About Us

Since 1987, Toonspeak has provided free, high quality drama and theatre activities for young people living in Glasgow.

We work with professional artists who challenge and inspire young people to create their own performances and manage their own projects – all of our work is young people led and we have 6 places for young people on our voluntary Board of Directors.  We aim to expand young people’s imaginations to help them reach their full potential and to inspire positive change within communities of disadvantage across the city. We ensure that anyone, regardless of experience, ability or personal circumstances can take part.

Our work can be separated into three strands: Centre Stage, Green Room and Front Row. Each strand focuses on different ways young people can engage with theatre.


Toonspeak is a charity registered in Scotland, registration number SC022150, and a company limited by guarantee, number SC260593.
