I’ve got three students going for it this year. They’re all in Bristol today. Anyone else?

K20Mac Mon 08-Jan-18 20:06:51

My ds was there. He had a great day. How did your students get on? Just the waiting now.

They were all really positive about it. One (not actually a student any more - left last year but I still see him as "one of my kids") has done it twice before and said that the standard was immensely high, but he was still really positive. The other two were there for the first time and both really enjoyed the day. They've both said that it was a really worthwhile experience, even if it doesn't go any further which is a great attitude to have. Fingers crossed for recalls! Good look to your DS.

Hi. My daughter goes to the Manchester audition on the 27th. Do you know what the day involved?

EvilTwins Thu 11-Jan-18 13:23:38

They split them by age, then they do workshops in acting & movement and sing their songs.

One of my three has been recalled. Apparently the standard is really high this year.

Best of luck to your DD!

Thank you! Keep us updated.

My ds also recalled. 😊 xxx

EvilTwins Thu 11-Jan-18 17:44:32

K20Mac that's great. Which show(s)?

K20Mac Thu 11-Jan-18 17:57:32

Super Hero, Sleepy Hollow and w/Shop. Loved experience in past so would be chuffed with anything. Xxx

EvilTwins Thu 11-Jan-18 18:51:26

My ex-student is recalled for Sleepy Hollow & Beautiful Game.

Pinkstargazer12 Fri 12-Jan-18 08:45:37

Well done both smile

K20Mac Fri 12-Jan-18 09:10:38

Good luck Pinkstargazer12 for the end of the month. They are a wonderful company to be part of. Xxx

Does anyone know the dates of the 2018 productions please? This always seems to be the missing info for candidates and it is so important?!!

K20Mac Thu 18-Jan-18 07:56:05

All the dates are on their website. Rehearsal and performances. Hope this helps. X

janinlondon Thu 18-Jan-18 11:54:27

How have I not been able to find those before??! Doh!

janinlondon Thu 18-Jan-18 12:01:48 I suspected, anyone in upper sixth is kind of scuppered by the Easter rehearsals. Back to YMTUK I guess!

Pinkstargazer12 Mon 29-Jan-18 14:15:41

My daughter auditioned on Saturday. There were A LOT of people there and she said the talent was incredible. It's now a waiting game. How long did you have to wait to get the first result?

K20Mac Mon 29-Jan-18 14:38:00

Glad your daughter had a great time. Results 'normally' go out on the following Tuesday or Wednesday so not long to wait. Good luck. xxxx

EvilTwins Thu 22-Feb-18 18:05:13

Anyone get anything this year? Literally just seen my (now ex) student and he got into Sleepy Hollow. He was beyond excited!

NotEnoughTime Thu 22-Feb-18 20:03:50

Hi EvilTwins

How come I've only just found this thread? confused

We "spoke" on here two years ago as my son went for the NYMT and you had two of your students (IIRC) applying. My son had a recall but then wasn't placed.

This time around he was recalled and we have found out today that he has got a part in "The Beautiful Game." We are all so thrilled. I had been warning him all week that the chance of getting a part was so small (as obviously didn't want to get his hopes up) so we were shocked and amazed today when we read the e mail.

Very well done to your ex student smile

What an amazing opportunity for them.

Now, I just have to sell the family silver to pay for it.....

EvilTwins Thu 22-Feb-18 20:26:00

Oh that’s brilliant! My boy was recalled for Beautiful Game too but really wanted Sleepy Hollow so is thrilled!

NotEnoughTime Thu 22-Feb-18 20:28:14

Thank you smile

Sleepy Hollow looks fab. We will def go and see that.

K20Mac Thu 22-Feb-18 20:28:38

My DS got Super Hero, he really doubted himself after recalls this year so super chuffed for him. Hard hearing ‘no’s’ though... Congratulations to others. 😊

NotEnoughTime Thu 22-Feb-18 20:50:45

Hi K20Mac-great news.

Well done to your DS.


EvilTwins Thu 22-Feb-18 21:07:46

Fantastic K20Mac! Obviously I’m not this lad’s mum but I was his drama teacher for 7 years and have gone through the highs and lows with him. I’ve helped him prep for 3 years of NYMT so it’s brilliant that he’s got something. He left school last year but still comes to me for audition prep - which is heavy at the moment!
