Young actors, technicians apply now
The National Youth Theatre is now recruiting for next year’s company, offering young people nationwide the chance to follow in the footsteps of Daniel Craig, Matt Smith, Orlando Bloom, Matt Lucas, Catherine Tate, David Walliams, Dame Helen Mirren and many more – all of whom once tread the boards with the NYT.
The NYT has an exceptional reputation for discovering epic talent and producing exciting, innovative theatrical productions in leading venues across the UK and as far afield as China.
But it’s not just stars-in-the-making the NYT is on the lookout for – they’re also on the hunt for behind-the-scenes technical talent. Alongside acting, applications are invited for costume, lighting and sound, scenery and prop making, and stage management courses.
The closing date for applications is 7th January 2011, with auditions and interviews taking place at venues across the country in January and February 2011.
Everyone who applies will be offered the chance to try out, regardless of previous experience. Applications are open to anyone who will be aged 14 to 21 on 1st August 2011. Members of the company who have completed the initial course are eligible to audition each year for productions until they reach the upper age limit.
