Colchester: Performer

What to expect on Audition day

YMT Auditions are for anyone aged 11 to 21 looking to kick-start their career in the performing arts - join the YMT 2017 Company!

You are auditioning to be part of YMT’s 2017 Summer Season where, if successful, you’ll be placed on a two/three-week project to create a brand new piece of music theatre with a team of theatre professionals. YMT projects are residential - so you'll be living away from home - and take place in July/August across the UK. The selection process is not based on geography, so you may not be placed on the course closest to where you live.

The audition is a three-hour group workshop where you’ll be led by a professional director, a musical director and a choreographer - YOU DO NOT NEED TO PREPARE ANYTHING!


Session 1: 10:00 - 13:00
Session 2: 14:00 - 17:00

To book, please select a session from the drop-down list below.


By car

The nearest car park to the theatre is St Mary’s Car Park (CO3 3AA).

For customers parking in St Mary’s we offer £1.50 car parking (for both evening and matinee performances). Please note there are no longer entrance and exit barriers at the car park. Please note you will need to buy your discounted parking voucher in advance and it must be displayed in your windscreen when parking.

Please allow plenty of time to find a space as car parks do get busy at peak times.

If St Mary’s car park is full you may also park in Middleborough car park with a pre-paid voucher from the theatre.

By bus

You can get to us using any of the buses to the town centre – visit Traveline South East for up-to-the-minute bus times.

Our closest bus stop is on Head Street (outside the Odeon / Nando’s) – postcode: CO1 1NH.

By train

The Mercury is only a 5-minute walk from Colchester Town Centre with great local bus links and is within walking distance of both Colchester North and Colchester Town station.
