Start-Up Saturday’s in Birmingham

Applications for next term now open!


A Saturday class for 11-14 year-olds from the National Youth Theatre in Birmingham.

This brand new course offers young people age 11-14 the opportunity to engage with the NYT and develop their early interests in performance before auditioning to become a member of the company. 

Participants will explore the NYT’s approach to ensemble theatre making through story telling, devising, music, dance, characters and chorus. While the final week of term is open to family and friends to see their work. 

Cost | 10 week term: £250 (10am – 1pm or 2pm – 5pm) 

Term dates | Winter Term 2018: 13th, 20th, 27th Jan, 3rd, 24th Feb, 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st March   

Terms are led by a variety of NYT directors and associate artists offering an assortment of practice in every session so young people can attend more than one term and learn different skills and techniques. While course dates and term times are fixed, we do appreciate 100% attendance isn’t always possible, and  welcome participants to join in even if the term has already started. The final sharing of work is an informal, non-compulsory event, while we encourage as many participants as possible to be involved.
