Youth Theatre Blog 4 | Showcase Rehearsals Update

Youth Theatre Director Liam Gifford gives us an update from rehearsals for the upcoming NST Youth Theatre Showcase.

The summer term has been a particularly busy one for our members with a great number of them preparing their performances for our Showcase evening. It has been a really fun process for both Emily (Youth Theatre Assistant) and me as we’ve been blown away by how professionally those involved have taken to becoming responsible for sourcing extracts, arranging rehearsal times, directing their pieces and investigating their scripts. The rehearsal process has also provided our members the opportunity to refine all of the performance skills and knowledge they have developed throughout their time with NST Youth Theatre through taking ownership over the final outcome of the performance.

The evening has been designed to enable as many members of NST Youth Theatre to showcase the exceptional talent they possess as they perform a wide variety of classic and contemporary scripts. They will be joined on the evening by members of our NST Community Youth Theatre who will be performing a piece which they have devised in their weekly sessions. This is an exciting move for us as we welcome them to perform at NST City for the first time.

We are also delighted that NST’s Head of Casting, Annelie Powell, will be joining us on the evening. Annelie has very kindly given her time to this event and we look forward to having her in the audience to see the fantastic talent which NST Youth Theatre is so fortunate work with week-in, week-out.
