open to absolutely anyone aged 11-21 and no previous experience is necessary.
“It is hard to overestimate the life-changing effect of a Youth Music Theatre
UK course on its participants and the extraordinary experience – musical, theatrical, collaborative and personal that comes from it.” Howard Goodall | Composer
YMT is a youth theatre like no other; we create innovative, high quality, brand
new work. Previous YMT Company member Ed Sheeran “YMT is the natural home for young musical theatre talent.”
YMT residential summer production courses provide a unique insight into the world of professional theatre whilst also offering significant personal and educational benefits; developing confidence and self-esteem as well as improving communication and team-work
skills. Supported by Arts Council England and NASUWT Teacher’s Union and each course is
Grade 8 accredited by
Trinity College, London. For young musicians, this is a chance to play in a pit-band, on-stage band or as an actor-musician. Each young person will work with a professional team to create
a brand new show on one of our summer residential productions.
“YMT is brilliant and invaluable
both as a performer and perhaps more so, a young person.” Alumnus Ewan Somers | Actor
