On 17 March, we unveiled our National Ensemble to the world. Over 130 young people applied and 23 were chosen. They are based in Aberdeen, the Highlands, Dundee, Perth, Dumfries, Fife, East Lothian, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Renfrew, Falkirk and we also have two members from Sweden (based in Aberdeen) and France (based in Glasgow).
Over the next year they will collaborate with top theatre professionals during development weekends held across the country and the skills learned will be put into practice in a major performance in August -to be announced shortly.
