HOW TO APPLY FOR AUDITION FOR
THE STAGE CHOIR
Despite these uncertain times, we have some wonderful plans in store for our 2021 season and, as ever,
we are in search of young people aged 10 to 23 who have a passion for musical theatre.
You may have lots of previous experience or none; we’re looking for potential.
We shall be producing three great musicals: the première of NYMT’s most recent commission, a new realisation of another, and a very large-scale production in a cathedral of a spectacular Disney musical.
We shall also be casting the workshop of a brand-new musical in development.
Full details of all these can be found here.
For our large-scale musical, we need an outstanding stage choir, which plays a vital role in the performance.
We are looking for confident singers who relish the idea of tackling a demanding score
and participating in an epic piece of theatre.
Previous choral experience will be an asset but is not essential.
Unfortunately, we are not able to hold our usual workshop auditions at venues around the UK.
Instead, we’re asking you to submit a self-tape.
Full instructions for this are below and we’ve even prepared a video with some helpful tips.
Please be sure to watch the video before you start your application online.
HOW IT WORKS
- Online applications for Stage Choir remain open for TENORS and BASSES only.
- The closing date for all other 1st round applications was Sunday 28 February.

recall audition online or in person
- There is no fee for attending recalls.
Remember, this is an application for Stage Choir.
If you are looking to join one of our productions as an actor/singer/dancer, you should apply as a Stage Performer.
Our creative teams are really excited to discover young talent from all across the UK.
We’d like to hear you sing two full songs that you feel best represent you and your voice.
One song should be from the Western classical tradition or operatic repertoire
but the other can be anything you like.
When filming, please ensure you film in landscape, that you have good lighting
and have found a space that is not too noisy.
Don’t forget to introduce yourself - tell us your name, how old you are and where you come from.
You can tell us an interesting fact about yourself, too, if you like!
Feel free to use a backing track or a pianist but just make sure we can hear you, loud and clear.
When your videos are complete, please save these as separate videos (or merge them together, if you like) and upload them to YouTube, Vimeo or a file sharing site like Dropbox, for example.
You will need to provide the URL links to your videos, so please be sure to have these ready when you make your application.
Once your application is complete, press submit and you’ll be redirected to the secure payment site via PayPal.
N.B. You do not need a PayPal account; just select payment by debit or credit card.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Once we have received your application, your videos will be forwarded to our creative team.
Please bear with us as the team will want to take time and care!
We’ll let you know the outcome just as soon as we can.
