Scottish Youth Theatre is passionate about providing opportunities and training for young theatre-makers. One of the ways we achieve this is with our National Ensemble.
Scottish Youth Theatre National Ensemble is a year’s commitment and is open to anyone who lives, works, studies or has family in Scotland. Auditions and membership of the Ensemble is free* and entry is based purely on ability.
In October 2017 we travelled the length and breadth of Scotland to audition young people aged 16 – 25 and we announced our current Ensemble in December 2017.
The group will benefit from the following:

Interested in being in SYT National Ensemble 2019? We will open registration in summer 2018
*Although participation in the Ensemble is free there are associated costs which aren’t covered such as accommodation and travel costs. Don’t let this stop you from auditioning. SYT has limited funds to help with this and will offer what support we can to those with the greatest financial barriers. We expect Ensemble participants to be motivated to raise funds for themselves too. You will be issued with a fundraising and sponsorship pack which signposts opportunities to apply for grants and gives ideas for raising money.
