Aspiring actors are invited to attend a Stratford Circus workshop to get a taste of a free course.
The National Youth Theatre has teamed up with housing association L&Q to run the workshop, which is taking place between 11am and 2pm on Thursday, June 21.
Those attending will then have the chance to apply for the nine month Playing Up drama training programme.
It offers 19 to 24-year-olds not in education, employment or training the chance to earn a higher education diploma in theatre arts, which is equivalent to two A-levels.
Matthew Corbett, Director of the L&Q Foundation said: “L&Q believes that no one should be denied the opportunity to achieve their potential because of where they live.
