Acting & Backstage Courses

Various dates / locations
Applications re-open Autumn 2021 for Summer 2022

Overview

Acting Courses

Summer Intake Courses will run from Monday 2nd August - Saturday 4th September 2021. All courses are two or three weeks long and you get Sundays off. If your course runs over the bank holiday on Monday 30th August this will be a working course day.

New for 2021 we have also introduced part time weekend Acting Intake Courses both digitally and on the ground in London. These courses take place from September - December on Saturdays. 

Despite the financial challenges all arts charities face in the current climate, in 2021 we are pleased to be significantly reducing fees related to applying and taking part in National Youth Theatre Intake Courses in recognition of the challenging circumstances faced by many young people around the UK. We will also continue to offer fee-waiver and bursary support for those in need of financial assistance to take part in our activity. Find out more here.
