The Court Theatre is looking for 20 young performers (aged 17-21) to form the 2024 Court Youth Company. To be part of the company you need to be committed, eager to learn, good at working with other people, have a love of theatre and performance and be interested in expanding your creative skills. We aim to form a diverse company of a high artistic standard. All are welcome to apply.

  2. Workshop Audition – a first group will be selected to attend a workshop audition on Saturday 2nd December run by Ben O’Brien-Limmer (Education and Outreach Manager) and Alison Walls (Artistic Director).
