Be part of Connections 500

The National Theatre’s Connections Festival is 21 in 2016. To celebrate, they are going to involve more young people than ever in making theatre.

The National Theatre are looking for 500 youth theatres and schools to stage 12 fantastic plays, picked from the 150 plus they’ve commissioned for young people since 1995.  Entrants will have the chance to transfer their production to one of our 40 partner theatres across the UK - Cast is one of these partner theatres.

Connections aims to:

  • Inspire 13-19 year olds with high quality new playwriting
  • Give companies the knowledge, skills and confidence to bring the plays to life
  • Encourage young people to get involved in all aspects of theatre-making
  • Celebrate young people’s talent

Connections 500 is open to any company of young people aged 13-19. Whether you’re a school, youth theatre, voluntary organisation or you’ve never staged a production before; your group can apply to be part of Connections 500.
