2017 Auditions have begun! #StartYourStory

Our NYT Auditions roadshow is well underway, having kicked off over the weekend. We are visiting 25 cities across the UK to find epic young talent for our 2017 Membership intake.

Can’t wait to meet all of you across the UK! If you haven’t booked your audition yet, do something amazing this year and #StartYourStory. Audition for the National Youth Theatre in 2017. 

Head here to book - spaces are filling fast! 



ShortFLIX is LIVE! Do you have a brilliant idea for a short film? Would you like training, mentorship, funding and a professional crew to help you make it? How about seeing it broadcast on national TV?

SHORTFLIX is for aspiring filmmakers aged 18-25 who are not in full-time education, employment or training, and have an idea for a short film that tells their own story, or that of their community, heritage, identity or area.

More information and how to apply here.

REP 3rd round recalls will take place 10:00 – 17:00 6th March at Ambassadors theatre. As there is only one third round date, if you would like to be considered for the REP please try to make yourself available in case you are recalled to audition.

You will be allocated an audition date and time.
