In October 2014, the Trustees of the Foundation awarded a grant to the National Youth Theatre REP Company over 3 years providing real professional experience for young actors. The NYT REP brings together young talented 18-25 year olds with highly regarded, established theatre practitioners. 15 young people will spend 9 months on an intensive programme of workshops, masterclasses and performance opportunities culminating in a 10 week repertory season in the West End.
