Masterclasses & Short Courses

Various dates / locations
Booking now open for Summer 2020


As you will be aware the UK Government is issuing advice to limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and here at National Youth Theatre with great sadness we have paused all on-the-ground activity to protect our young people, staff and the wider public. As a result, this also includes our Start-Up Saturdays courses (starting 25th April).

We are working to provide our members and young people around the UK with digital masterclasses and opportunities in the coming weeks.

If you would be interesting in finding out more about our digital courses, please register your interest here and we will be in touch.

For 15-25s

For 11-14s

Masterclasses provide a platform for you to hone your performance skills, gain confidence and perform to a panel of industry experts who will give direct personal feedback.Led by top industry professionals during academic holidays, NYT Masterclasses are the perfect way to gain further experience in auditioning, screen acting or approaching classical text.
