Auditions across Scotland in September & October 2018
Scottish Youth Theatre National Ensemble is a company of young people aged 16 – 25 selected from across Scotland for their exceptional potential as performers and theatre makers.
The Ensemble is a year's commitment and company members spend one weekend a month working with top theatre professionals to develop their skills. During the summer, they work intensively as a company to devise and perform a new piece of theatre.
The successful participants will experience the pinnacle of youth theatre experience as these previous participants can testify;
I think the intensity of the five week residential is something that is not available elsewhere, and certainly the opportunity to write is something I would not have been offered at this stage in my career.
It’s a fantastic place to be, not only is it for acting but it also lets you gain so many skills in different areas i.e. music, physical theatre, writing, directing. It’s not often you get a company that provides all the assistance to carry out these skills.
It has been a really professional show experience and I've been able to see everything that goes into a show so now we all have the knowledge to put shows on ourselves. I also don't think with my experience so far that I would have been given the opportunity elsewhere to take a role as an assistant director and be making decisions and analyzing scenes.
There is no audition or participation fee. We offer bursaries for additional costs incurred such as accommodation or travel. Entrance based purely on ability
You must be aged between 16 and 25 and live, work, study or have family in Scotland.
You must be able to attend every development weekend and also be available for the whole summer period to devise and perform in your show. Dates TBC
