Acting Auditions and Backstage

Applications for Acting Auditions and Backstage Interviews are open online and we've been contacting schools and arts centres around the country asking them to help us in our search for young talent from all over the UK by putting up a poster. If you can support our talent search by putting up a poster in a schools or arts centre email frankie.haynes@nyt.org.uk. If you know a 14-25 year-old who would benefit from an opportunity with the National Youth Theatre send them to www.nyt.org.uk/auditions 


Buckingham Palace Performance

Last night members, supporters and friends of NYT met at Buckingham Palace for a reception to celebrate 60 years of the National Youth Theatre, hosted by HRH The Earl of Wessex.

Many thanks to all the guests who celebrated the occasion with us, and to the NYT Members who performed an incredible show to mark the occasion. Pictures of the event can be found on our Facebook page here.



Supper Club

Last week saw the start of NYT Supper Club! Members, alumni, staff, supporters and anyone with an interest in the National Youth Theatre are invited to host a supper (or event of your choice) in an effort to fundraise for the National Youth Theatre bursary fund.

There’s still time to take part. Sign up to host a supper now! You can check out recipes, tips and more on our Supper Club Tumblr here. Thank you for your support.

The critically acclaimed 2016 NYT REP Season at Ambassadors Theatre must end on Friday 25th November. There's a limited number of tickets left so if you want to catch Romeo + Juliet, Pigeon English or DNA book now here.

Here's a teaser of Romeo + Juliet to whet your appetite:
