The National Youth Theatre Backstage Courses are three week industry-led courses for young people aged 16 – 25 who have successfully interviewed to join the National Youth Theatre as a Backstage Member.
Build your portfolio, expand your experience and gain feedback from 1:1 mentoring sessions. Find your stage in 2020.
You will learn about and can choose to specialise in one of the following departments:
Costume Design and Making
Lighting, Video and Projection
Set Design & Scenic Construction

The courses cater for all levels of experience. So, if you have knowledge in your field already, our industry professional tutor will be able to stretch you.
