“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
