Delighted to Announce the National Youth Theatre Ensemble 2021
Following a selection process in which over 150 young people auditioned through zoom, with call backs happening both virtually and in person, we are delighted to announce the 16 Performing Ensemble members, the 4 Design and Technical Theatre Ensemble members and the 2 Creative Associates that will make up the 2021 National Youth Theatre Ensemble. The Ensemble that were chosen represent some of the brightest sparks in youth theatre today and their tenacity, kindness and spirit is something to behold in these challenging times. Over October mid-term 2020, the Ensemble took part in their first development week, of what will become the National Youth Theatre 2021.
