Photo Flash: Inside Rehearsal for National Youth Theatre's JEKYLL AND HYDE

Following the success of four previous West End REP Seasons, the NYT Rep Company will return to the Ambassadors Theatre for a fifth year in September with a radical new imagining of Jekyll and Hyde by Evan Placey who wrote their 2015 hit Consensual, based on the novella by Robert Louis Stevenson. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the company in rehearsal below!

The NYT REP is inspired by the traditional repertory theatre model and was set up by Artistic Director Paul Roseby in 2012 to provide a much needed free alternative to expensive formal training. The course is a unique free talent development initiative allowing the best young talent to work for nine months with leading institutions culminating in three months of performances in the West End.

REP company alumni include Sope Dirisu (2013) who is about to play Coriolanus at the RSC, Seraphina Beh who is starring in EastEnders after being spotted in the REP and beginning filming the following week (2016), Ellise Chappell who is set to play a lead role in BBC One's series of Poldark (2015) and Lauren Lyle (2015) who is filming a major role for a new Amazon series. Mentors to REP members this year include Denise Gough (People Places Things), Paterson Joseph (Peep Show), Shane Zaza (Happy Valley) as well as the Heads of Casting at The Royal Court Theatre and National Theatre.

Everyone has another face they hide behind... The National Youth Theatre REP Company invite you into the world of Victorian England, where civilised society meets seedy Soho for a thrilling new adaptation of Jekyll and Hyde from award-winning playwright Evan Placey (Consensual, Girls Like That) Directed by Roy Alexander Weise (Mountaintop, JMK 2016 Winner), this classic tale of secrets, deceit and revenge will be reinvented by some of Britain's most exciting emerging talent on one the West End's most historic stages.

NYT's REP Season will run at the Ambassadors Theatre from 26 September - 8 December. For more information visit www.nyt.org.uk.
