School Groups & Resources

How can my school be involved? 

Every year we create our program with school audiences in mind. By liaising with our schools advisory board, carrying out surveys, and considering valuable feedback we aim to continue to deliver productions that will inspire and engage young people from all over the UK. If you would like your school to be involved with our work we can bring our auditions workshop to your school, or bring a school trip to one of our latest shows and take advantage of our group discounts. 

"Thank you to Miss Pelgram... I wouldn't be here without you”

Doyin, NYT Member

Thank you teachers!

We love all of the brilliant teachers who encourage their students to Audition or Interview for NYT every year!


Bring National Youth Theatre auditions to your school 
(Annual Auditions January - March)

Many of our current members say they auditioned to join the NYT after a teacher inspired them to apply. To reduce the cost of travel and make this opportunity more accessible we can come to your school for no extra cost than the usual audition fee and deliver a three hour workshop, followed by one on one auditions with an NYT associate artist.

If you would like to express an interest in arranging an auditions day at your school please contact for more information.


We offer group discounts, free post-show discussions and open rehearsal events for schools and youth groups across our season of shows.

School Workshops | DNA

To support this year’s production of Dennis Kelly’s DNA, we’re offering bespoke workshops delivered in schools by the production's director Sean Hollands (National Youth Theatre Associate Artist, Theatre Practitioner at Frantic Assembly) and a small team of National Youth Theatre Associates including previous cast members. These workshops are a fun and inventive way for students to access GCSE set texts through drama participation, regardless of previous experience in performance.   



If Chloe Can 

If Chloe Can is a creative educational initiative that inspires young females with remarkable life stories of women who have achieved extraordinary success in the face of adversity. The initiative started life as a book, featuring interviews with the world's most successful women, compiled by Esther McVey Minister of State for Employment.

To hear about our next Chloe Can event subscribe to our schools mailing list 

“Study after study shows that seeing, hearing and meeting real life ‘role models’ is a great way of inspiring others to achieve their goals. That’s why this initiative is so important and why so many people have given their time to support it. Huge thanks to NYT for bringing my work to life in such an engaging way.”

Esther McVey
Former Minister for Employment at the Department of Work and Pensions
