BYMT Auditions 2020

Colchester: Performer (2020)


Session: 10:00 - 13:00

BYMT Auditions are for anyone aged 11-21 looking to kick-start their career in the performing arts - join BYMT 2020 Company!

You are auditioning to be part of BYMT’s 2020 Summer Season where, if successful, you’ll be placed on a two/three-week project to create a brand-new piece of music theatre with a team of theatre professionals. BYMT projects are residential - so you'll be living away from home - and take place in July/August across the UK. The selection process is not based on geography, so you may not be placed on the course closest to where you live. Check out some of our previous shows HERE and HERE!

Do I need to prepare anything?

No, you don't have to prepare anything. If you have done auditions before, please note that this year we are changing the format slightly. The audition is a 3 hour group workshop where you’ll be led by a professional director, a musical director and a choreographer. Please read the full details of the auditions process HERE.

What should I bring to the audition?

You will need to wear loose comfortable clothing (NOT JEANS), trainers or jazz shoes and bring a bottle of water. If you haven't already supplied a photo when booking, please send your headshot to
