Become a part of the acclaimed and dynamic NST Youth Theatre and work with professional theatre makers to create thrilling and inspiring work as part of our main house programme. Find your voice and explore the transformative nature of theatre.

NST Youth Theatre brings some exciting changes to the way the youth theatre is set up this year. Where previously you have chosen which project you will be working on for the year, this year there is the opportunity for you to audition to be involved in every production we put on! This year we are returning to age banded groups while rehearsals for productions we are working on will take part in separate sessions. 

HOW THE NEW GROUPS WILL WORK
If you are not working on a production you will be in the age banded groups that will be working on developing your drama and acting skills through exercises, games, ensemble based workshops and in session performance opportunities. These will run for 10 weeks per term.

Everyone will be able to take part in auditions for Youth Theatre productions. If you are cast in one of our productions you will leave your group for the duration of the rehearsals and only attend rehearsals on Fridays and Sundays. You will not be needed every Sunday however you will need to commit to all of the rehearsals you are needed for.
