Support the NYMT and be part of the journey!

Why support us?

The National Youth Music Theatre is a small arts charity with no core funding and relies upon participants’ fees, ticket sales from productions and income generated through fundraising.

Established in 1976, the National Youth Music Theatre represents the very best in work with young people through musical theatre. For over thirty years it has enabled young people across the UK to develop both their creative and personal potential, leading Andrew Lloyd Webber to dub it ‘the best youth music theatre in the world’.

All of the young people who take part in NYMT’s activities testify to its benefits, describing it as a ‘life-changing’ experience. Not only do they extend their skills within the main disciplines of musical theatre (acting, singing and dance), they also develop key learning and life skills: the ability to work as part of a team, improved communication skills, increased confidence and growing self-esteem.

NYMT’s developing Workshop Programme in schools and colleges is helping to broaden the company’s existing demographic by engaging young people from less advantaged backgrounds.

How YOU can support us

The Annual Fund

The Annual Fund seeks to support the cost of NYMT productions and you may choose to help by supporting a specific production cost such as lighting, sound, props or costumes.

Join the NYMT 40th Anniversary Friends 

Become a Friend of NYMT and help support the bursary scheme. We work tirelessly to attract a diverse range of young people. Many are not able to meet the full cost of the NYMT experience and we want to be able to ensure that the NYMT never has to turn away a promising talent.

It would be great if old friends could really get behind the NYMT and offer a helping hand to the next generation. Even 40 new friends joining us would make a real difference to our ability to support young people for the 2016 season and beyond.
