How can my school be involved? 

Every year we create our program with school audiences in mind. By liaising with our schools advisory board, carrying out surveys, and considering valuable feedback we aim to continue to deliver productions that will inspire and engage young people from all over the UK. If you would like your school to be involved with our work we can bring our auditions workshop to your school, or bring a school trip to one of our latest shows and take advantage of our group discounts. 

West End REP Season 2017 

The NYT REP Company launched in 2012 in response to the rise in tuition fees to offer a free alternative to expensive formal training. 

Inspired by the traditional repertory theatre model, the NYT REP Company course offers free, practical, industry-based talent development in drama and performance over nine months to 16 NYT members. The initiative culminates in three months of performances in the West End.

We are delighted to be returning to the Ambassadors Theatre in the heart of London’s West End as our 16 strong REP Company aged between 18-25 present Frantic Assembly’s Othello by William Shakespeare and a new adaption of Jekyll and Hyde by Evan Placey

If Chloe Can 

If Chloe Can is a creative educational initiative that inspires young females with remarkable life stories of women who have achieved extraordinary success in the face of adversity. The initiative started life as a book, featuring interviews with the world's most successful women, compiled by Esther McVey Minister of State for Employment.

To hear about our next Chloe Can event subscribe to our schools mailing list 

“Study after study shows that seeing, hearing and meeting real life ‘role models’ is a great way of inspiring others to achieve their goals. That’s why this initiative is so important and why so many people have given their time to support it. Huge thanks to NYT for bringing my work to life in such an engaging way.”

Esther McVey
Former Minister for Employment at the Department of Work and Pensions
