We are very excited to announce that Black Sheep Collective are now one of the National Youth Theatre's 10 partners, providing free opportunities for young people to receive the Audition Access Fund ...
Both workshops will be fun, creative and engaging, providing preparation support for National Youth Theatre auditions!
The National Youth Theatre (NYT) is a pioneering youth arts charity which has, for over 60 years, inspired young people and audiences alike in the importance of live theatre. They empower young people to take centre stage in their lives. NYT provides accessible opportunities, both onstage and backstage, to those aged 14-25 from around the UK.
"How will Black Sheep Collective support NYT?"
We will be working with the National Youth Theatre to offer free activities for up to 30 young people living in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas. We will support young people in gaining access to NYT resources and helping them be part of the national programme.
The Auditions Access Fund is a series of free resources that will support young people during National Youth Theatre audition process. We are inviting young people between the ages of 14-25 who are interested in finding out more about the National Youth Theatre and want to take part.
There will be two free online preparation workshops:
Workshop 1 will take place on 17th March 6:00pm-7:00pm - A workshop exploring drama, National Youth Theatre's ensemble approach to theatre making, and audition technique.
Workshop 2 will take place on 24th March 6:00pm-7:00pm - A closer look at audition technique, choosing an audition piece, and submitting a self-tape.
Both workshops will be fun, creative and engaging, providing preparation support for National Youth Theatre auditions. We have 30 free places available. If you are interested or know of anyone who may benefit from this opportunity, please do get in touch.
Until next time ...

Georgia grew up in Milton Keynes interested in drama and performance from a young age. She left MK to attend LIPA (Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts) where she studied Community Drama.
During her time in Liverpool, she absorbed the Arts and Culture scene of the city and feel in love with vibrancy and diversity of the arts there. She also studied at ITI (International Theatre Institute) in Singapore where she observed and researched mime and physical theatre as part of a placement.
On returning to Milton Keynes after graduating, along with Danny, they set up Black Sheep Collective CIC in order to fill the gap in the arts scene of Milton Keynes.
Since setting up the organisation, Georgia has written and directed several fringe theatre shows including 'Where's Alice?' and 'Who's Alice?' a twisted adaptation of Alice in Wonderland and most recently 'The Cagebirds' by David Campton. She has established her own style of work nurturing and guiding young talent. She manages and facilitates the Black Sheep creative learning and community outreach program both in Milton Keynes and Northampton.
Georgia is always striving to push the boundaries with her work, allowing opportunities for an audience to question and challenge their beliefs also with an alternative dark twist.
