Acting Auditions and Backstage
Applications for Acting Auditions and Backstage Interviews are open online and we've been contacting schools and arts centres around the country asking them to help us in our search for young talent from all over the UK by putting up a poster. If you can support our talent search by putting up a poster in a schools or arts centre email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you know a 14-25 year-old who would benefit from an opportunity with the National Youth Theatre send them to www.nyt.org.uk/auditions
