Playmakers Youth Theatre

National Theatre Connections (School Yrs 8–13)


Our brand new National Theatre Connections performance group is open to any Playmakers Youth Theatre member in School Years 8-13.

Members of this group will work on a brand new play commissioned by the National Theatre, leading to a minimum of two performances in two different theatres as part of the nationwide Connections youth theatre festival.

Although participants will need to be a member of one of our other Playmakers Youth Theatre groups, we are not only offering roles for performers - we're offering all production roles to participants!

The full roles we have available are:

  • Actors;
  • Assistant director;
  • Costume designer;
  • Lighting designer;
  • Sound designer;
  • Stage manager.

If you're unsure of which role would be the right one to opt for, then do contact our Young People's Producer, to discuss further.

Rehearsals will begin on Monday 1 November and take place weekly through to the performance weeks in April.

Those participants in the group will be given a full rehearsal schedule in the first session on Monday 1st November. Please do note that schedules will be generated in a way which means no participant would be required to attend every week.
