Southampton: Performer (2019)
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 2019 Company!
You are auditioning to be part of YMT’s 2019 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 3.5 hour group workshop where you’ll be led by a professional director, a musical director and a choreographer. Please read the full details of the auditions process and what to prepare, before attending the audition, found HERE.
