A4 for tasters

We are very pleased to announce our TAKE A BITE TOUR taking place at venues across Fife during the school October holidays.

These initial first taster sessions are for those from primary school age up to the age of 25. All activities will be structured around the age group present, and all led by professional teaching artists in the particular field. The day will be split in two with a development session in the morning on the children and young peoples ideas on the Fife Youth Arts Hub and the afternoon will be the creative workshop. Lunch will be provided. Registration is officially open. You will find our form on our website at

Please give our flyer a “share” around! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us or drop us an e-mail at



We’re so excited here at the Hub! The Fringe programme opens tomorrow and we can’t wait to see SHOUT! which opens tomorrow.

In other news, us at the hub are super excited for our newest hubbit Miss Aimee Izatt who has been accepted to Queen Margaret University to study Drama and Performance! We hope all of the young people who work with us in any capacity are contented with exams results today, but please remember what Einstein once said:

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

All info about the fringe programme can be found


Getting geared up for Summer!


After such a successful year last year, we are ready to embark on another fabulous summer, why not join us for what promises to be a spectacular and sizzling holiday season!

After a five star review from the Fife Free Press, earning the accolade of  ‘as polished and outstanding as any touring professional show you will see this year’, The Phantom is back and it promises to be even sharper and more powerful than before. Tickets on sale from the Adam Smith Theatre and the show will run Thursday 24th-Sunday 27th July, 7.15 shows including 2.15 matinee on the Saturday and a 4pm matinee on the Sunday.

YMTS @edfringe

After the sell out production of ‘Les Miserable School Edition’ in 2013, YMTS is returning to the Fringe bringing four exciting and diverse performances for 2014 at venue 70, Edinburgh Academy.

The season will kick off with “Shout! The Mod Musical” running from Wednesday 6th of August to Sunday 10th of August at 8pm. Shout! Will bring to life the music fashion and freedom of the 60s through arrangements of chart-topping hits, as a group of groovy girls flip through the pages of a popular girls’ magazine. This production features a talented young cast in collaboration with Fife College.

The following week running from Wednesday 13th of August to Saturday 16th of August at 7pm and Sunday 17th of August at 4pm YMTS bring you West Side Story, a well known retelling of Romeo and Juliet’s tragic tale set in 1950’s New York featuring the popular songs America, Tonight and I Feel Pretty. This show promises to tug on the heartstrings, excite and entertain.

In the Midst of all this the xYMTS group will return, having developed from last years performance of ‘The City Goes to Bed’ with their new production: “Perchance to Dream”.  This production will have two performances on Saturday 16th of August at 4pm and Sunday 17th of August at 1.30pm. Join us for an emotional but light-hearted story of love and opportunities both lost and won.

And last, but certainly by no means least, YMTS will be bringing you a recital of young musicians for the first time this year! YMTS young Artist Recitals: From Baroque to Broadway will feature a range of talented young artists from singers to pianists, playing a variety of music over a set of differing programmes. These will run from Thursday 7th August to Sunday 10th August at 6pm and again in the following week from Thursday 14th August to Sunday 17th August. Both Saturday 9th, Sunday 10th, Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th will also feature a matinee performance at 1pm.

So we promise something is coming and it’s going to be good!
