The Mousetrap Mission

We believe that all young people should have the opportunity to attend outstanding theatre, irrespective of their cultural, social or economic background.

Our mission is to increase young people’s access to the best of live theatre in London (particularly young people with limited resources, opportunities or support) and to enable them to engage creatively with that experience.

  • WE BELIEVE passionately in the power of theatre to transform young lives
  • WE AIM to engage young people through theatre and drama, using it creatively to educate, challenge and inspire them
  • WE SERVE young people primarily from across London, focusing on those who experience disadvantage – whether economic, social or through a learning or sensory disability

At the heart of our work is the desire to open the doors to all that London's vibrant theatre scene has to offer. Whether you are a young person or someone working with young people, we invite you to come through those doors with us and begin your theatre journey. 

"The theatre has always thrived on new work and new audiences. Mousetrap Theatre Projects is to be applauded for playing an important part in introducing young people to its potent magic." 

Sir Cameron Mackintosh
