This April, Leeds Grand Theatre invites aspiring actors aged 18 to 25 to audition for a unique practical skills-building course in performing arts. The project aims to help new talent forge careers in theatre and is part of the Leeds Actors in Training (LAIT) collaboration.

Founded in October 2017, LAIT gives young adults the opportunity to access actor-training of the highest quality with support and insight from professional directors, actors, movement specialists, vocal coaches and producers.

Delivered every Tuesday evening at Leeds Grand Theatre, new recruits will get the chance to work on several exciting projects, including a new production directed by Lizi Patch, Director, which is set to be performed at Seven Arts in July.

LAIT member David Fisher, who was recently accepted by Rose Bruford College of Speech and Drama, South London, said: “I can’t thank LAIT and Lizi enough for helping me to get into my dream drama school; the work we’ve done here is invaluable for building skills and confidence.”

Ellah Jackson, who recently beat hundreds of hopefuls to gain accreditation from The Creative Minds Group, Hollywood, said: “LAIT is an honest and open space where passionate young actors can develop their toolkit under expert guidance.”

Applicants will be invited to meet Lizi Patch and take part in an audition workshop before the new term starts on Tuesday 17th April.
