Become a part of the acclaimed and dynamic NST Youth Theatre.

 

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.

 

HOW THE GROUPS WORK

Each week within the age banded groups you will spend time working on developing your drama and acting skills through exercises, games, ensemble based workshops and in session performance opportunities. These sessions run for 10 weeks per term.

Each year NSYT aim to do 3 shows between the Spring and Summer terms. While rehearsal days and audition processes will vary from production to production, our aim throughout every year is to be as inclusive as possible. 

If you are cast for one of our productions, all rehearsal dates you are called for will be mandatory attendance. You are also encouraged to continue attending the weekly NSYT sessions during this time, although we understand this might not always be possible.
