Thoughts before the National Youth Theatre 2016

Hey. How you doing. 

So earlier in April I was offered a place on the Senior Acting course at the National Youth Theatre for 3 weeks. Today is the 3rd of August and I’ve got 11 days to go before I start the course. As the date is coming up closer I’m getting more and more excited and I’m starting to just get all my things together!

A part of me though, admittedly, kind of dies inside because it is soooooo much money. £1500 to be exact. For the course and stay in Trinity Laban’s student halls. However I’ve been told by countless people now that if I’m staying in the halls I’m going to have the time of my life – so hopefully it lives out to expectation.

I received an email a couple of days ago from my course director with things that I need to bring/prepare. On the list was to bring a prepared modern monologue to work on, to bring some form of white clothing, to bring a party outfit (whatever that means to me) and to research NYT’s history. The research is asked as this year is a very special year because it is the 60th anniversary of the National Youth Theatre. So I’m sure the intake courses will be hitting on this celebration of all the brilliant work that the company has achieved in the past. I’ve wanted to be a part of this company for a while and I feel really proud that I get to be a part and learn from such an organisation. Eeeeeek okay getting excited writing this 🙊🙊So yes this is what I have prepare! If you’re going to NYT too this summer do post back on this blog and let me know how you found it – or what you’re expecting! Would be good to hear about your experience at the National Youth Theatre 😀

If you have any burning topics about drama school/auditions/NYT then drop me a comment and I’ll try my best to discuss and give my honest opinion!
