What happens at the Open Day? 

Join us for a free two-hour workshop exploring an introduction to the National Youth Theatre’s ethos and approach to ensemble theatre making. As part of the workshop explore self-taping for auditions, ideal for those who have not experience self-taping before or who want to further explore their approach.

A Q&A will follow the two-hour workshop, learn from National Youth Theatre Associate Artists and National Youth Theatre Ambassadors about upcoming opportunities and what to expect as a National Youth Theatre Member.
