What is the Gap Year Theatre Course?
The Gap Year Theatre Course (GYTC) has been carefully designed to cater to students aged 16 and upwards. It is specifically for those who wish to commit to an intensive course in preparation for entry to top drama schools or universities. Students should have a genuine ambition to work in the performing arts industry.
The course will provide advanced training in acting, singing, dance and stage management/technical theatre. The timetable is structured so that students may take on employment, enabling them to fund themselves throughout the course.
What does the course offer?
Developed by NWTAC, the GYTC has access to excellent resources and offers intensive skills development, working with a range of industry professionals and practitioners.
Students will extend their repertoire, receive training and guidance for auditions, work on core skills and have the opportunity to perform in a number of productions; including plays, musicals, revues and showcases.
Students will also have the opportunity to audition for a variety of professional touring productions throughout the year; providing an opportunity to ‘earn while you learn’.
