Connections is the National Theatre’s flagship learning programme. Each year, thousands of young people all across the UK perform new plays specially commissioned by the NT. Through taking part they develop creative and social skills and the knowledge, ambition and confidence to bring exiting new plays to life.
‘Connections is the most important thing that we do at this theatre’
Rufus Norris, Director of the National Theatre
Donations of all sizes support the year-round programme, directly helping thousands of young people in their journey towards producing a play, from rehearsals to the professional stage. They also contribute towards a bursary fund, which means that there need never be a barrier to taking part.
‘We’ve been given the chance to work with industry professionals and to perform in one of the country’s leading theatres. There’s nothing like NT Connections.’ Connections Participant
‘Seeing the huge enthusiasm, growing self-confidence and blossoming of the young people is exhilarating.’
