Welcome once again to your weekly round up of everything going on at the National Youth Theatre!
Casting for our 2018 Season!
This week we launched our annual Castings for our 2018 season. Every year, our Company Members are invited to audition for our shows, projects, and the REP Company – our full time training programme, which exists as an alternative to formal training.
Company Members! Book your Casting now by heading to the online Members’ Board!
There’s less than a month left of our REP West End season 2017, and tickets are running very low. Make sure to secure yours now to avoid disappointment by heading here.
Want to find out more about what it’s like to train as part of our REP Company, take a look at this blog from current REP Company Member John Curtis Kemlo.
