Nonsuch Launch New Pay-What-You-Can Performer Training

Nonsuch, Nottingham’s international cultural studio are thrilled to launch a new, pay-what-you-can development programme for aspiring actors and performers aged 16-19 in Nottingham.  Nonsuch Young Performer Training (NYPT) is designed to support and prepare the city’s actors and performers for Drama School or other training routes with no fixed price from this November.


With internationally trained practitioners on hand to mentor and support throughout the process of progression, the programme has been developed to support outstanding young creatives who are aiming to pursue a career in acting or performance.  


At a time when the costs of entering professional actor training are increasing, we’re thrilled to be offering this exciting new programme on a pay-what-you-can basis with a maximum accepted donation of £10 per week (should participants be able to contribute). The costs of the sessions will be covered by any donations, small funding grants and tickets sales from showcase performances.


Past participants of Nonsuch’s intensive summer residencies have since gone on to successfully gain places at Rose Bruford College, East 15 Acting School, Oxford School of Drama and Frantic Assembly’s Ignition Programme.


“The Nonsuch Young Company was pivotal in my progression as an actor and performer”

Alongside NYPT will be will be the Nonsuch Young Company (NYC) for performers aged 12-15, auditions to be released at a later date.  


Entry into NYPT is by audition only, ensuring all students gain professional industry experience and continuously work on extending their repertoire and the company size will be capped at 15 to ensure the intensity of the training.  

Auditions are being held at Nonsuch Studios on Saturday 11th November.  

16-19 year olds – Saturday 11th November 2017, 12pm – 3.30pm
