The­atre clo­sure ‘jeop­ardy’

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

The planned clo­sure of Scot­tish Youth The­atre would “jeop­ar­dise” the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment’s Year of Young Peo­ple, MSPS have heard.

The the­atre said last week that it will close in the sum­mer af­ter los­ing out on Creative Scot­land fund­ing.

Child­care and Early Years Min­is­ter Ma­ree Todd faced ques­tions on the clo­sure at Holy­rood.

Con­ser­va­tive Rachael Hamil­ton said the clo­sure “stands to jeop­ar­dise” the Year of Young Peo­ple, which in­cludes an ob­jec­tive to al­low young peo­ple to ex­press them­selves through cul­ture.
