NYT 2017 REP Company & Productions - Casting Auditions Now Open

We will be producing various shows across the UK in 2017 - there are a huge number of opportunities to get involved in. Check out examples of our 2016 season in our 2017 Casting Auditions Guide for a taster of what to expect.

The NYT REP Course will return in 2017! NYT REP offers a unique learning experience, unrivalled industry access and an unprecedented showcase to a group of young NYT actors, providing a vital FREE alternative to other forms of expensive ‘formal training’. Our REP 2017 Information Pack will provide you with all the facts you'll need before your audition. 

There's still time to book your Casting Audition if you'd like to audition for a role in a 2017 production or the NYT REP Company. We’ve just added some more weekend dates and a casting in Manchester so get booking. You never know where you might end up...
