This summer we're running a brand new course for actors aged 18-25 in Bristol, London and Manchester looking to kick start their careers.

Over the course of five days of intensive training with a leading industry NYT associate participants will develop their professional practice in:

- Script Preparation Work

- Self-taping and Acting for Screen

- Auditioning for Theatre

- Devising Professional Work

- Connecting with Industry Professionals

The course will culminate in a public performance and industry Q&A. On completing the course applicants will be given access to a film of their performance.

This is an ideal course for NYT members looking to take their love of performance to the next level or young people who didn't do NYT when they were younger but now want to pursue a career as a performer.
