60 Reasons to Audition Roars On

National Youth Theatre members, alumni and friends have been sending in their reasons to audition to mark the final 60 days of our 60th anniversary celebrations.

FOLLOW US ON INSTAGRAM to watch them all or if you're not an Instagram user click here to view the 44 reasons posted so far.

We'd love hearing why you think other people should bite the bullet and sign up to audition or interview to join the National Youth Theatre. If you'd like to be featured, just self-tape a film on your mobile phone that's less than 60 second long and send it to us at 

Here are some of our favourites so far:
