Youth Theatre Project – ATA’s Production of Teen Play ‘Chaos’

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that All the Arts will be producing our independent Youth Theatre external production of the play Chaos at the prestigious Rose Theatre, located within the renowned Rose Bruford Drama School in Sidcup.

This incredible opportunity is open to all local teenagers passionate about straight acting—you do not need to attend ATA classes to audition. We are excited to collaborate with the team at The Rose Theatre and Nick Hern Books to offer this thrilling opportunity for young people.

Chaos is a play close to our hearts, which we first performed several years ago in association with The National Theatre to critical acclaim. We are delighted to recreate this production with a brand-new cast. We invite young people aged 11 to 19 years (as of September 2024) to audition. Please note that the play contains teenage themes and is aimed at secondary school-aged students.

With only 24 roles available, we encourage any unsuccessful applicants to audition for future projects. The roles are very specific, so we seek not only those with excellent acting ability but also those who fit the character briefs well.

About ‘Chaos’:

Written by Laura Lomas, the play Chaos is a symphony of dislocated and interconnected scenes. A series of characters search for meaning in a complicated and unstable world. Bouncing through physics, the cosmos, love and violence, they find order in the disorder of each other.

Written specifically for young people, the play formed part of the 2019 National Theatre Connections Festival and was premiered by youth theatres across the UK. It offers opportunities for a large, flexible cast of any size or mix of genders, and can incorporate chorus work, movement and music.
