Funded jointly by Department for Digital Culture Media and Sport and the Big Lottery Fund the National Youth Theatre is offering five open access sessions for young people based in West Norfolk.

Delivered over five weeks, this mini course is ideal for a taste of what NYT has to offer. These sessions are open to anyone who has an interested in performing already, or to anyone who wants to try acting classes for the first time. 

There are a maximum of 25 spaces...so make sure you sign up fast!

The sessions are designed for young people aged 14 – 17 and will provide a platform for you to hone your performance skills, gain confidence and meet likeminded people. Led by a top industry professional with an NYT assistant, the open access sessions are the perfect way to gain experience in acting skill, self confidence or just to try something new.
