" THE NYMT IS THE BEST YOUTH MUSIC THEATRE IN THE WORLD "
Andrew Lloyd Webber
Despite these uncertain times, we have produced three wonderful productions this summer. We opened with a large-scale, inclusive production of Disney’s THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME at Manchester Cathedral. Following that we produced HENRIETTA, originally commissioned by NYMT for 2020, and BILLY THE KID at The MTC at Alleyn's School, Dulwich. More news coming soon for Workshops and our 2022 season.
Take your place in 45 years of musical theatre history by auditioning for the award-winning National Youth Music Theatre.
What do Jude Law, Sheridan Smith, Idris Elba, Lily James and Matt Lucas have in common? They all started out with NYMT! In January and February each year we audition throughout the UK to find outstanding young people aged 10-23 for our productions.
At this point, you wonder what the UK's performing arts world would now be like without NYMT. Not just the luminaries we know, but the personal development of so many youngsters, many moving on to train with us. And all because an old mate, had determination and creativity that long ago... and still has.
