BYMT AUDITIONS - CURRENT (Age 11-21 for actors, dancers, musicians, singers)

BYMT are currently touring the nation, 26 Jan - 24 Feb, in search of talented young dancers, actors, singers and musicians aged 11-21 and we will be auditioning in Edinburgh on Saturday 16 February at City of Edinburgh Music School, Broughton High School.

We’re looking for young people to join the company and take to the stage in our 2019 summer season of musical productions. The audition takes the form of a fun 3 ½ hour group workshop where participants get to sing, act and dance for leading theatre practitioners who are looking for talent, determination and a love of performance. You can watch our audition trailer here.

We welcome absolutely anyone to audition, regardless of experience. Discounts of 50% are available for group bookings of five or more students (£19 per student, normally £38).

Young people are auditioning to take part in an intensive 2-3 week summer residential course in Musical Theatre in Production; they’ll train with the industry’s best directors, musical directors, and choreographers to build one of eight new musical shows, performed at professional theatre venues across the UK. We also have musician and backstage opportunities. Previous BYMT Company members include BRIT award-winner Ed Sheeran and Grammy award-winner Sam Smith to name but a few.

BYMT is a youth theatre like no other as we create highly innovative, brand new work. Our shows for 2019 include: Dance Connections, part of our boundary pushing dance series that boldly combines complex vocal soundscapes and improvisation with daring contemporary movement; The Accidental Time Traveller adapted from Janis Mackay's award winning book; Paperboy, a heart-warming coming of age musical-drama set against the backdrop of 1970’s Belfast; Fight Like a Girl, charting the remarkable rise of women’s boxing, plus much more.

I’d be really grateful if you could help us spread the word to anyone you think may be interested in taking part. Further information is available at the links below, including a downloadable poster:


Performer auditions can be individually booked online or by phone 020 8563 7725. Please email to arrange group bookings.


TEEN TAXI - Scottish family with Teenager (CURRENT)

My name’s Dan and I'm currently casting for a new BBC show called Teen Taxi. I was emailing to ask whether you would be able to help me spread the word to your community? Either on your social media or email members! I’m really hoping to find an Scottish family to join us for our second series and you may know of a suitable parent or teenager that fits the description below.

We’ve just finished Series 1 and looking for fun, outgoing families to join our current cast of people all over the UK! We’re looking for families with at least one teenager between the ages of 14-19 to take part, younger siblings are also welcome.  

Here's a little bit more about the show:

Rarely parents/ guardians get the opportunity to connect with their kids having to compete with technology, selfies and Snapchat! But there is one place where no one can escape – the family car!

In this exciting series we aim to explore the relationships between parents/guardians and their teens from all walks of life in all different directions – from dropping them off at sports clubs, social events, and even to their first date.

BBC Bitesize Film Opportunity For Dad and Child aged 5-7 (EXPIRED)

The BBC is looking for a father and child duo to film with for an early literacy film for BBC Bitesize and wondered if any Dads of Drama Studio children might be interested?

The child must be between 5 and 7, and can be of any ethnicity. 
A confident reader in the Dad is essential as the filming requires them to read a book to their child. 
Filming would probably take place at their home and would take a couple of hours. 
If anyone is interested could you email the producer a short video of Dad reading part of any book to his child, that would be fantastic.
It is unpaid, though they are willing to cover reasonable expenses if there are any of course.
They would like to film as soon as possible really but have to apply for a child performance licence which can take up to 21 days but hope to be able to film before that timeframe. If not it will be by the end of January. 
If you are interested please contact Freya, the producer, details below directly and attach a clip of Dad reading part of a book to your child as detailed. This website is a good one for uploading your video files and you can use it free.
