Top Up

August 2023

Owing to the popularity of our past Top-Up courses, we are now offering all NYT members, aged 18-25, the opportunity to take part!

The National Youth Theatre Top-Up Course 2023 is a one week industry-led course taking place across various locations in July and August. The course is for NYT members who would like to reconnect with NYT and its community, refresh your acting skills, meet other NYT members in your area and work collaboratively in an ensemble theatre environment.

Please note you must have completed an NYT intake course and be a company member to attend this course.

Please note that this course is for young people who are already Members of the National Youth Theatre and these places are non-residential. There will be two Top-up courses running in each location at the same time, you will be randomly allocated one of the two courses.
Please read our Terms and Conditions before booking.
