In June 2016, we changed our name from Islington Community Theatre to Company Three.
We changed our name because we've never really been a 'community theatre' - we've always worked specifically with young people. But more importantly, because we'd like our work to be seen as theatre, not 'community theatre' or 'young people's theatre'.
In fact, we think all community theatre and young people's theatre should just be seen as theatre.
We decided to call ourselves Company Three because we wanted a name we could grow into - something that could change with us in the next stage of our development.
We like the word Company because company is at the heart of everything we do: we create work through our core company of 75 young people and when audiences see our work they sometimes tell us that they feel like they've spent an hour in the company of teenagers.
And we like Three for lots of reasons, but mostly because we think young people have too many rules in their lives, so our work is made using only three: be kind, be brave and be yourself.
