Congratulations to Spike, National Youth Theatre member
27 May 2021
The National Youth Theatre Audition process during COVID has been online. Spike was one of 5000 young actors who submitted a video of himself performing a monologue, his choice from The Prodigal Son. For many the process stops there. The auditions are considered by a panel and a second-round audition then takes place. Spike was invited to perform a second monologue this time from Catcher in the Rye. This was live on a zoom call followed by an interview. This took him through to become a member of National Youth Theatre. He will attend a summer school run by theatre professionals and work towards a performance. This is an amazing experience but is only the first step, after this, as a member of the National Youth Theatre company, Spike will have the opportunity to audition for future productions staged in London’s West End, so this is a major first step for those seriously interested in an acting career.
Congratulations to Spike who follows in the footsteps of Joseph Oxtoby and Teddy Chapple.
