Free National Youth Theatre of Great Britain (NYT) audition day at Pembrokeshire college to any economically disadvantaged locals aged 14-25 this January.
I sent off an application to Auditions Access Fund - highlighting the need for centralised engagement with the arts on the outskirts; I identified the Royal Welsh College's 'Young Actors Studio' (YAS) as being the paragon of this:
“Pembrokeshire is as remote in Britain as you can get - the Megabus' last stop in Wales. It's rural and poor except for areas aided by Tourism or foreign funding. As it is with most areas that are poor, the education that is encouraged here (patronisingly) is vocational work, as if people who have no money are somehow remiss in doing, or are unable to do, anything artistic!The Young Actors Studio is a group filled with young people who have actively sought out drama in Pembrokeshire in hope of getting access to what those in London particularly, but most cities have in general. Having this workshop would be an eye-opening, world-warping wonder. Please help.”
The response arrived:
FREE auditions to members of Pembrokeshire College's Performing Arts Course, to those who are involved with YAS and to the economically disadvantaged young locals of Pembrokeshire!
I attended the NYT course this Summer. It was like rocket fuel!
I swear the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain can drive Pembrokeshire's Young People to make their home more than just the Geographical West-End.
I advise any person of Pembrokeshire 14-25 to close all other tabs and apply for a FREE AUDITION now.
