Actor Auditions | British Youth Music Theatre

Actor Auditions


Our auditions are creative group workshops led by professional theatre practitioners and are friendly spaces in which to explore acting, singing, movement and team working skills. All disciplines are taken equally into consideration when casting our shows, so give everything a really good go. If you’re feeling anxious, don’t hide at the back and throw yourself into the session. The most important thing is commitment and enthusiasm!

Every year hundreds of young people 11-21 year olds perform in fully staged musicals created by West End writers and directors, on the professional stages of venues such as Southwark Playhouse, Lyric Theatre Belfast, and Birmingham Hippodrome with BYMT. For your chance to take part in the next Easter and Summer seasons of shows all you have to do is come and audition and show us what you can do. Sing, dance, act, play a musical instrument.
