Annexe Arts, the new city centre youth arts hub in Merchant Street, has put out an open call for performers to join its young company.

The company will be run by Tyler Mortimer, an associate artist at Annexe Arts Hub, and will meet for two hours every week, when it will explore themes and practices in theatre. The company will perform in showcase events at the end of term, allowing them to be seen by industry professionals and audience members.

Tyler Mortimer started his career running St Ives Youth Theatre, a charity based in Cambridgeshire, which became one of the largest non-profit children’s youth theatre organisations in the UK.

During his five year tenure his work included several large-scale musical productions, five-star runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as well as working alongside organisations such as the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre Connections Programme.

Mortimer favours a particular focus on new writing, and more specifically spoken-word, focusing on textual analysis and exploration of the human subtext.

Anyone interested should email: Closing date for registering interest is Saturday 14 October. The company says that a few slots may be available on the day but auditionees should book to avoid disappointment.
