Julie Ritchey is a director-creator who specializes in immersive, participatory theatre for young people and their families. She is a wizard at dynamic performer/audience relationships, new work development, and lo-fi magic.


Julie is on a mission to create a world where young people are valued, supported, and included exactly as they are - not just as future adults. She partners with arts organizations, schools, and caregivers to create theatre that demolishes the hierarchy between young people and grown ups through story and play. Her artistic practice is rooted in a framework of anti-adultist collaboration that values young people as dramaturgs, advisors, creators, and experts rather than merely as audience members or consumers.

The projects in the portfolio below are all available for licensing. For a complete CV, contact Julie.
