Young People

Cheap tickets, workshops, events and a national festival of new writing and young theatre making.

If you want to find out how the National Theatre makes shows or if you want to try something new then there are loads of things we offer to help you gain skills and make theatre. From Q&As to workshops and screenings to short courses, if you are aged 16-21 then there is an opportunity at the NT for you. Come and have a go.

We are looking for up to 20 young people to take part in our latest Creative Development Opportunity at the National Theatre. This weekend is for anyone who has an interest in design for performance.

This FREE Q&A is a great chance to meet current Front of House staff and talk to them about what life is like working at the NT.

What warm-up games and exercises do you plan? How do you encourage people to take part and deal with reluctant participants? Come along to the practical workshop and find out.

The National Theatre’s Creative Development Opportunities offer a space for young creative people who want to make theatre – writers, directors, designers, producers, filmmakers, graphic designers, lyricists, music producers, circus performers, animators, digital artists, dancers and more

Entry Pass is a free membership scheme for anyone aged 16 – 25, with an allocation of £5 Entry Pass tickets at every performance at the National Theatre.

The National Theatre’s Connections Festival is 21 in 2016. To celebrate, we are going to involve more young people than ever in making theatre. The concept is simple – exciting new plays, commissioned by the National Theatre, performed by youth theatre groups across the UK, supported from the NT and its partner theatres.

New Views is the National Theatre’s annual playwriting programme for 15−19-year-olds. Each year hundreds of students from across the UK learn about playwriting from some of the finest writers in the business and write their own short plays, with one play chosen to be staged at the NT with a professional cast.
