“It exceeded my expectations! I didn’t realise the incredible opportunities it could give you.” – Outreach participant, 2021
They believe that the power of theatre is rooted in the diversity of story, thought and creative process, and our National Audition Initiative is a key aspect of their strategy to engage with and celebrate young creatives who represent this diversity. They offer practical support, raise aspirations and present viable professional training routes for those wishing to explore the creative performance industry as a career choice.
