Opportunity for Young Actors and Theatre Technicians

Connections is the National Theatre's annual, nationwide youth theatre festival. The programme has been established for 27 years with a celebrated history of championing the talent of young people from across the UK.

This year, a young company from Tramshed will be performing The Heights by Lisa McGee.

The company will be made of a young cast (15-19 years old) directed by a young emerging director (18-24 years old) and will be worked on by a young Theatre Technician (18-24 years old) creating opportunities for local young people with a love for theatre. 

There are two ways young people can still be part of our Youth Company:
