We are planning now for 2016 and beyond. We need to ensure a strong infrastructure for the organisation now so we can deliver: • Auditions to find the best of young British talent • Skills development courses and talent development initiatives to nurture and train this talent • Innovative productions to showcase this talent to a wide audience . . . • And that give employment and volunteering opportunities to emerging young creative and technical theatre professionals


Investing in NYT now will ensure the quality of our programme in 2016 and beyond. We believe that the best way for young people to learn is by doing – by engaging with leading artists and industry professionals. Your support will enable us to plan incredible opportunities and to work with brilliant creative professionals – writers, directors, designers, choreographers, musicians and technical and production staff.
