NYPT

NONSUCH YOUNG PERFORMER TRAINING

Pay-what-you-can professional performance training for 16-19s

ABOUT:

Nonsuch Young Performer Training (NYPT) is an exciting, pre-professional training programme for aspiring actors and performers aged 16-19 in Nottingham.

Designed to provide the best professional training to kick-start the development of those aiming for careers in performance, NYPT is the perfect preparation for Drama School or other performer training routes led by Nonsuch’s award-winning, internationally trained practitioners.

Over the past 4 years, graduates of Nonsuch’s intensive summer residencies have gone onto study at Rose Bruford, East 15, Fourth Monkey, Guildhall School of Music & Drama and Frantic Assembly’s Ignition Programme.

WHAT WE DO:

Through the programme, you’ll intensively develop your physical, vocal, ensemble and performance skills through masterclasses, weekly workshops and public performances. You’ll explore texts, devise new work, build your experience, prepare for auditions and boost your confidence for your future career.

 

THE PROGRAMME INCLUDES..

Regular showing of work to invited audience of professionals.

Reduced ticket prices on professional skills workshops.

NYPT skills workshops in camera acting, clowning, stage combat.

Experience working as a company of actors, producing your own work

Reduced ticket prices to see shows

Opportunity to create and perform Street Theatre production.

Opportunity to work with a professional designer on end of year show.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

  • Affordability – our sessions are financially accessible to all. Pay-what-you-can, means that you literally pay what you can each week. We want everyone to be able to receive the same level of training no matter what their situation.
  • Breaking Boundaries – we believe that theatre doesn’t need to take place in a theatre. Whether it be street theatre at light night, festivals, Nottingham caves – NYPT want to give young people opportunities to push the boundaries further than traditional theatre.
  • Challenging – all of the tutors have been drama school trained and ensure the same level of training within each session. We expect a professional and committed attitude from the participants and in return provide a space where people can be challenge and stretched in their technique.
  • Personal Development – our classes do not exceed 12 students. We want each individual to get personal training and individual support. We work effectively to build trust quickly within the group so that it is a supportive space to share and grow.
