Belfast Falls Road: Performer (2019)

What to expect on Audition day

YMT Auditions are for anyone aged 11 to 21 looking to kick-start their career in the performing arts - join the YMT 2019 Company!

A flagship show of the 2019 summer season in Belfast will be a brand-new musical adaptation of the much-loved memoir, Paperboy by Irish novelist Tony Macaulay; a coming of age drama set against the gritty backdrop of the Shankill Road in 1970’s Belfast. Auditions for all eight productions in the 2019 summer season including Paperboy will take place at the Lyric Theatre Belfast on 10 Feb. The Falls Road Audition is a special audition just for Paperboy at Falls Leasure Centre, 18 February, open to anyone in Ireland for just £5.

You are auditioning to be part of YMT’s 2019 Summer Season where, if successful, you’ll be placed on this three-week project to create a brand-new piece of music theatre with a team of theatre professionals. YMT projects are residential - so you'll be living away from home - and take place in July/August across the UK. The selection process is not based on geography, so you may not be placed on the course closest to where you live.

The audition is a group workshop where you’ll be led by a professional director, a musical director and a choreographer.
