Young people, from 15 to 25, with a passion for performance can audition for the new Corby Young Actors and Corby Young Dancers companies at The Core theatre in the town.

The auditions are being held on Monday, July 8, at the theatre at the Cube and no previous experience of acting or dance is necessary.

The new term for both companies begins in September and young people selected will have the chance to develop their skills with leading professionals during a six-month training programme.

Actors will receive tuition in movement, voice, character creation, devising and working with scripts and will also create an original production with The Core’s creative director Chris Sudworth, which will be performed in the theatre in April next year.

Dancers will work on developing stamina, strength, choreographic skills and technical ability and will collaborate with Martin Lawrance, choreographer with the world-renowned Richard Alston Dance Company, and dancers from the company, on a piece which will also be performed in April, 2014.

Both groups will take part in this November’s Corby Youth Arts Slam at The Core theatre.

The two terms for dancers and actors will consist of 16 weekly sessions and 14 full‑day rehearsals, plus performances.

To sign up for an audition or to find out more, email or call 01536 470470.
