Kettering Youth Theatre Group is a theatrical group run for people from aged 6 and under 22 years of age on the 1st of June preceding the show date . Each year the group puts on a pantomime at our local theatre to the public. The group was first set up in 1974, our first show was Little Red Riding Hood and is run by volunteers. The group is affiliated to NODA has won many NODA awards for its productions.
Information on joining the group.
Joining the group is done by auditions each year which are held around May time for new members. Once auditions have taken place that is it then for that year. However you may still wish to apply after this time and we will keep your details on file for the following years production.
Once auditions have taken place the person auditioning will be informed within a week. Should the audition be successful a subscription would then be due of £28 for the year. Once a member has auditioned successfully they would then not need to audition again for each year providing they have paid the annual subscription fee. If a year is missed then they would need to re audition. Should a member then wish to take on a principle role they would need to take auditions for each role they apply for. Principle roles are only available to new members in their 2nd year normally unless unforeseen circumstances arise. All cast members would need to provide their own dance shoes and basic costume clothing i.e tights, socks, footwear. Main costumes will be provided.
Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings from 6:45pm to 8.30pm from May till the start of the Summer holidays. They then resume from September till the week of the show on Thursdays at the same time but also Sundays 2pm to 4.30pm however the Director may decide to change timings depending on what they are setting. Rehearsals are currently held at the Kettering Buccleuch Academy.
