Last places on Start-Up Summer Online available here

This 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 and participants will cover a range of topics in 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.

Why a digital course?

There are many advantages of taking acting classes online, some of them being:

  • No geographical restrictions, means you can join in from anywhere in the world!

  • The familiarity of your home, will help keep the nerves away

  • You can connect from a range of devices eg. a phone, laptop, PC or tablet 

  • Parents & carers can easily keep an eye on their young people & see what the course entails 

What's more, sign up to a digital class and receive 6 months of The Hub for free!

Spaces are limited* to 18 young people in each session so we strongly recommend you book quickly to avoid disappointment.
