Masterclass: Start-Up Digital

23 Apr 2022 to 10 Jul 2022
Now open for booking for April - July 2022


This online course is a fun skills-based online drama course. As well as being great fun, a good confidence booster and a chance to learn new skills, Start-Up courses provide an introduction to the National Youth Theatre for those wishing to audition when they're 14.

Start-Up Digital will run on Saturdays for ten consecutive weeks online via Zoom. Each session is 90 minutes in length and participants will cover a range of topics and sessions that have been designed for a digital forum. Led by experienced NYT Associate Artists, Start-Up Digital encourages young people to stay creative and connected.

Across the ten weeks participants will explore devising, character, scene study, performance skills, voice work and more.

Spaces are limited* to 16 young people in each session so we strongly recommend you book quickly to avoid disappointment. Places are allocated on a first come first served basis.
