Are you looking to get into drama school? In an hour-long session on Wednesday 17 March, Backstage is partnering with the UK’s world-renowned talent incubator, the National Youth Theatre (NYT). We’ll be breaking down the process of applying and auditioning remotely for your drama school or course from the team that will be selecting this year’s cohort for NYT.

The sessions will be led by Abigail Rose, an NYT Associate Artist and graduate of their prestigious NYT REP Company. Rose also trained at Mountview Academy of Performing Arts, and her professional stage acting credits include at the National Theatre and Luna Gale at the Hampstead Theatre. Her screen credits include London Road and Atlantis, both for the BBC.


The session includes three segments, each with advice and practical examples of how auditioning remotely is working for the NYT’s courses:

  • Applying for Courses Online
  • Auditioning for Courses Online
  • Digital Course Applications
