Lyric Ensemble

The Lyric's exciting new company of young actors.

The Lyric Ensemble is a group of 15 actors working and training two nights a week over nine months with director Holly Race Roughan, the Lyric’s Director of Young People Nicholai La Barrie and the Lyric’s Artistic Associates.

They will create a brand new show for a two week run in the Lyric studio in June and perform a work in progress in March as part of the Lyric’s Evolution Festival, which celebrates and platforms the work of younger artists. The Lyric Ensemble will also provide opportunities for aspiring creatives including designers and directors to work alongside leading theatre practitioners in realising company shows.

Lyric Ensemble members will be part of the Lyric for a year and will receive mentoring, careers advice and pastoral support from the Lyric team. They will also be invited to Lyric press nights and other Lyric events and receive free Young Lyric membership for a year entitling them to access cheap tickets, additional classes and activities and a wide range of other benefits.

The Lyric Ensemble is generously supported by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, the McGrath Charitable Trust and The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust.
