Playmakers Youth Theatre

National Theatre Connections (School Yrs 9–13)

-

Our brand new National Theatre Connections performance group is open to any Playmakers Youth Theatre member in School Years 9-13.

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, liam@playtothecrowd.co.uk 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.
