We are very excited to announce that Black Sheep Collective are now one of the National Youth Theatre’s 10 partners, providing free opportunities for young people to receive the Audition Access Fund.

The National Youth Theatre (NYT) is a pioneering youth arts charity which has, for over 60 years, inspired young people and audiences alike in the importance of live theatre. They empower young people to take centre stage in their lives. NYT provides accessible opportunities, both onstage and backstage, to those aged 14-25 from around the UK.

“How will Black Sheep Collective support NYT?”

We will be working with the National Youth Theatre to offer free activities for up to 30 young people living in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas. We will support young people in gaining access to NYT resources and helping them be part of the national programme.
The Auditions Access Fund is a series of free resources that will support young people during National Youth Theatre audition process. We are inviting young people between the ages of 14-25 who are interested in finding out more about the National Youth Theatre and want to take part.

There will be two free online preparation workshops:

  • Workshop 1 will take place on 17th March 6:00pm-7:00pm – A workshop exploring drama, National Youth Theatre’s ensemble approach to theatre making, and audition technique.
  • Workshop 2 will take place on 24th March 6:00pm-7:00pm – A closer look at audition technique, choosing an audition piece, and submitting a self-tape.

Both workshops will be fun, creative and engaging, providing preparation support for National Youth Theatre auditions. We have 30 free places available. If you are interested or know of anyone who may benefit from this opportunity, please do get in touch.

Until next time,

Georgia Tillery
