Five Years of NYT REP in the West End

This year the NYT REP Company celebrated its fifth year in the West End with a three-month run at the Ambassadors. Since its conception 77 actors have benefited from the free training the course offers, which collectively would have cost nearly £700,000 to train for a year at drama school. Over half of the REP graduates are female and over 25% are BAME. Over 95% of participants have gone on to work professionally in the creative industries with alumni including Sope Dirisu (2013), title role star of the RSC’s 2017 production of Coriolanus, Seraphina Beh (2016) recently seen as Madison Drake in EastEnders and who was cast after being spotted in the REP and started filming the following week, Ellise Chappell (2015) who plays Morwenna in BBC One’s Poldark and Lauren Lyle (2015) who stars as Marsali in the Amazon Prime drama series Outlander. It has recently been announced that the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation has awarded the NYT REP Company £75,000 over the next three years. Here's a short film featuring the 2017 NYT REP.
