This week at NYT…
Our 2018 REP Season is about to kick off with our Soho Season of shows, before heading off to the Garrick Theatre in November.
On Monday our production of Evan Placey’s Consensual kicks off our Soho Season. Directed by Pia Furtado with Associate Direction from our very own Anna Niland, Consensual returns to the NYT stage after it’s premiere during the 2015 REP Season.
Following that comes Victoria’s Knickers, a riotous royal love story from NYT Alumni Josh Azouz and Ned Bennett, first developed during the 2017 Epic Stages courses. Catch the extraordinary untold story of a young Queen Victoria and her forbidden love from 27 October
Next week our October half-term masterclasses kick off, with Acting for Screen in Manchester and London, and Audition Technique and Performing Shakespeare in London. Missed out on booking for this month’s masterclasses? Don’t worry, our six-day intensive masterclasses will be back in February.
Youth West Partnership
Are you 14-17 and based in West Norfolk, or know someone who is? We’re running free open access workshops for young people based in the area this November and December as part of the Youth West partnership.
Applications are still open for our Stepping Up course!
Stepping Up is a brand new launched this year to provide young people aged 19-24 with access to a level 2 qualification. It’s specifically aimed at those who, for whatever reason, haven’t achieved a full set of GCSEs or a full level 2 qualification and who have an interest in theatre.
