YMT Auditions 2014

YMT's Auditions Tour 2014

16/10/13

We are extremely excited to announce our national auditions tour 2014!

We would LOVE to see many talented young performers and/or musicians aged 11-21 at one of our audition dates. Our 2014 tour will take place next January and February and our teams will travel to 22 cities across the UK. Auditions take the form workshops lasting two and a half hours and places are limited but we will be holding up to three sessions per city. So, now it’s over to you to sign up for your chance to audition for a part in a YMT production.

We will be pulling out all the stops for our 2014 programme as it shall be our 10th anniversary year! We will be presenting at least eight productions in cities from London in the south to Aberdeen in the north. Our programme of productions announced so far for 2014 include Macbeth, Miss Interpreted and Terry Pratchett’s Soul Music. Our full programme will be released within the next few months.

YMT productions are two-week residential projects that take place all around the country. There is no need to prepare anything for your workshop audition however here’s some great advice from YMT Practitioner, Yael Loewenstein (auditions panel 2013).

  • Arrive prepared: dressed appropriately and a bit early to do a personal warm-up.
  • Remember the panel wants to like you!
  • Have a 'yes' attitude and be prepared to try new things.
  • Remember everyone is in the same boat: everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Share your strengths and have the attitude of improving in weaker areas.
  • Ask questions

And if you want some more tips and advice, watch our alumni talk about their experiences at YMT - singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, Channel 4's Fresh Meat actress Charlotte Ritchie and Loserville the Musical’s Richard Lowe.

Wishing you lots of luck and we look forward to seeing you at your YMT audition!
