National Youth Theatre of Wales (NYTW) offers world-class training and performance experiences for young people. NYTW creates diverse, risk-taking contemporary theatre and is a flagship for youth theatre in Wales.

NYTW offers a range of exciting and inspiring training and performance opportunities, working alongside industry professionals, and selected members will be invited to participate in one or more of these opportunities throughout the year.

We’re looking for creative and enthusiastic young people who love theatre and performing, and are excited about learning new skills and working with new people!


National Youth Theatre Wales 2018
In 2018, National Youth Arts Wales will work in partnership with Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and Theatr Clwyd to deliver a week-long residency intended to provide development opportunities for young performers who are also interested in other career pathways within theatre.

Who is it for?
We are looking for talented young artists, aged between 16-22 years who live or were born in Wales with an interest in performance and pursuing a career in theatre. You might regularly engage in drama classes or activities through your school/college, a private drama school and/or with a local youth theatre company.
Entry into the National Youth Theatre Wales ensemble is via a group audition workshop and informal interview process.
