There’s been some time to breathe this week at NYT as we’ve had a break between shows with Zigger Zagger coming down on Saturday, and the REP Company moving into Ambassadors Theatre for tech ahead of opening night in just a few weeks time.
Saturday night marked the end of out 50th Anniversary run of Zigger Zagger at Wilton’s Music Hall. We had a brilliant time at the beautiful venue of Wilton’s, and are sure that their beautiful music hall and backstage areas are now a little quieter without our rowdy bunch of Zigger Zagger gang members chanting away.
We had the pleasure of welcoming the writer Peter Terson and his family to the production, and know that our cast absolutely loved meeting him.

Rehearsals are over, and the REP Company have now moved into Ambassdors for tech! You can keep up to date with the REP Company’s antics on their twitter feed @NYTREPCompany, and on our very own Instagram feed, where REP members will be doing a number of takeovers.

Rikki Beadle Blair
For the past two weeks Rikki Beadle Blair has been heading up an R&D project surrounding LGBT voices.
This afternoon Rikki and members of NYT Theatre will share their work 'Timeless', at our Holloway Road Rehearsal Rooms.
Love’s epic legacy of LGBT diversity. As long as we have been human we have been diverse. Timeless is an exploration of LGBT identities throughout recorded history, excavating and examining the the clues and characters that still live and breathe within the legacies of drama, music and literature and art.
Chic to Cheek
Our Fundraising Gala, Chic to Cheek is now and sale! The event will be hosted by NYT Vintage member Krishnan Guru-Murthy with the Olivier Award winning Adam Meggido and Duncan Walsh Atkins creating a performance by NYT members for the night.
Classic Car Boot Sale
Last weekend some of our members donned some fantastic pink boiler suits and performed at the Hemingway’s Classic Car Boot Sale in Kings Cross. Directed by NYT Associate Anna Spearpoint, our members performed a number of promenade pieces across the event, and even managed to find time to say hello to a certain Martin Freeman who was attending the event.
Start Up Saturday
Our Start Up Saturdays are about to kick off again this weekend for the new term. Our 11-14 year old participants explore the NYT’s approach to ensemble theatre making through story telling, devising, music, dance, characters and chorus across the term.
Congratulations to REP Company 2016 member Seraphina Beh, who has been cast in James Fritz’s new play Parliament Square. James is also NYT alumni, and wrote The Fall for NYT last year.
Parliament Square will premiere in Manchester, at the Royal Exchange in October, before transferring to the Bush Theatre from November.
