Interested in technical theatre? Looking for a challenge this summer? Interview to be part of one of our backstage courses!

Our Backstage Courses are two week industry-led residential courses, where you can specialise in Stage Management, Lighting, Sound, Costume and Scenic Construction. This course is open to both members and non-members of the National Youth Theatre, and is a great opportunity to grow your knowledge of theatre-making both on stage and off.

How do I book a Backstage Interview?

Our next interview date is this Sunday 27th of February and you can book your space here. Your Backstage Interview will be 20 minutes and you will be asked to present your ideas on a short task, found here in our Backstage Guide.

After your Backstage Interview, your result will be emailed to you on results day, 11th May 2022.

Read through our Backstage Guide for more information on how to prepare. We know that the weekend will approach fast so our interviewers will understand if you are unable to complete the task in full, we just want to see your passion and ideas come through.

What happens at a Backstage Interview?

On the day and time of your interview you will log into NYT’s online studio. In this space you will meet (digitally) with your NYT interviewer and another representative from NYT. You will spend about 20 minutes with your interviewer, in a one-to-one session.
