We are proud to nurture future generations of performers, directors, writers, producers, designers and backstage staff. We aim to make our work accessible to all who want to take part. Our flagship talent development programmes – The NYT REP Company and Playing Up – are justly acclaimed by our industry peers.
We develop new audiences for our work, on stage, on film and online. Our alumni are employed in theatres and in the wider creative industries across the UK and worldwide. We train and employ youth theatre practitioners, many of whom were members of NYT, strengthening the country’s creative workforce.
