To apply to join us on an Acting Membership Course in 2024 and become a National Youth Theatre member, you need to upload a digital self-tape audition to the Hub.

What do I need to include in my self-tape audition?

1. Introduce yourself

With your name, pronouns*, where you are from, and anything else you’d like to share with us.

2. Performance

Film yourself performing a monologue from a published play, no longer than two minutes.

3. Answer three questions

  • Why you want to join the National Youth Theatre
  • Other than acting, tell us about something you’re passionate about
  • Tell us a fun fact about yourself

Do I need to do my self-tape in one take or can I edit it together?

If you want to film your introduction, monologue and answers to the questions separately then edit them together, you can. You can also do this all-in-one take if you wish. Your editing skills will not affect your audition.

Can I submit more than one audition tape?

You can only send one link to NYT so only one self-tape can be submitted per year. If you have submitted your self-tape, you cannot submit another one. We recommend doing multiple takes and submitting the version you are happy with.

What happens if you cannot view my tape or there is a problem with it?

We will be in touch by email to ask for another version of the tape or to offer some troubleshooting guidance.
