NEW AUDITIONEES

If you are auditioning for NYT and you are not a current member, please find a piece for yourself either one you find yourself or that has not been taken on this list, either dramatic monologue from a play, a song or a dance.

Current members remember: You must choose one from the list and get your name against it. No doubles. We want variety!
If you want to offer a suggestion then please do so, but get it approved by Directors first.
Any music accompaniment must be arranged well ahead of time and you need to rehearse with it.
It goes without saying that your pieces must be thoroughly thought through, learnt and polished.


E.mail your claim or request to nytdirector@collegest.org. uk
