Creative & Production Team Professionals: Open Call 

Creative & Production Team Professionals: Open Call 

National Youth Theatre is looking to hear from Creative & Production Team Professionals passionate about creating work with and for young people.  

We’re currently looking to expand the network of Creative & Production Team Professionals we work with on our future National Youth Theatre productions and R&D processes which will take place both nationally and at our newly redeveloped National Production House in North London in 2021. NYT productions have young people at their heart with National Youth Theatre members forming the cast as well as part of the production team of all of our projects, which means a genuine enthusiasm for supporting the development of young people is a crucial aspect of any role on one of our productions.  

The specialisms we are currently looking to hear from are: 

  • Company Stage Managers
  • Stage Managers
  • Movement Directors 
  • Choreographers 
  • Composers
  • Sound Designers
  • Lighting Designers
  • Set and Stage Designers 
  • Costume Designers 
  • Head of Costumes
  • Costume Supervisors 

We are particularly interested in hearing from professionals from ethnic backgrounds currently underrepresented in the creative industries and those who are d/Deaf or disabled. 

To submit yourself to be part of our pool of Creative & Production Team Professionals please complete this short form by 10am, Monday 5 July. 

One of our upcoming productions we are looking for creatives to join the team of is a new play by Lakesha Arie-Angelo taking place in Summer 2021. 

A clique of Caribbean maroon warrior women, a general of Haiti and his right hand man, an ex enslaved couple reclaiming their land, a group of Black French Caribbean soldiers held captive in Portchester and their wives travelling across the Atlantic to be reunited with them. These are the Ancestors- manifesting in our world, in the hopes we can stop history repeating itself, but do we really hold the key? What dark forces are still currently at play? 

A promenade piece that explores the grounds of Portchester Castle and the voices of Black revolutionaries that history has continued to silence, until now. 

Written by Lakesha Arie-Angelo and directed by Jade Lewis, with Mumba Dodwell directing the initial Research & Development period, a new play forming part of Freedom and Revolution, a collaborative project in partnership with English Heritage Shout Out Loud and University of Warwick. 

Rehearsal Dates: 19 July – 14 August, Production Dates: 16-22 August 

Location: London Rehearsals + Portchester Rehearsals and Production 

We are particularly interested in hearing from Black creatives and professionals to join this project. If you are particularly interested in working on this project please flag this on your submission.
