“Really enjoyed the 3 weeks I spent over at SYT, felt very rewarding knowing that I helped to create a show that so many people came to see and enjoy, would definitely do it again.”
This course allows emerging theatre artists to form their own company and develop a new piece of theatre for a run of performances at the end of the course.
Using The Happiness Formula as a starting point, you will work as part of a group of creative collaborators, experimenting with characters, story and narrative to devise a new piece of theatre.
Experienced theatre makers will impart their skills and knowledge as they guide and support you through the creation of your original piece.
** Audition Information
At the end of April we will audition in Scotland’s main towns/cities where numbers of applicants are sufficient. At registration you will be asked to select first and second choices from Dundee, Inverness, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dumfries.
You will be asked to perform some short prepared pieces. It is an opportunity to show us your strengths as a performer and for us to find out why you would like to be on the course.
Information on the audition, including times, venue and what you need to prepare will be sent to you after the application deadline (31st March).
