About the Ignition 2018 Company

No experience is necessary; we’re looking for 12 young men from across the UK who haven’t taken part in drama or dance before.

By coming to a Trial, you will be able to get involved in a free weekend residency and further training with Birmingham Old Rep and Frantic Assembly. Travel, accommodation and food will be provided and any additional access needs will be available to participants.

We hope you can get involved.
