" THE NYMT IS THE BEST YOUTH MUSIC THEATRE IN THE WORLD "
Andrew Lloyd Webber
ENABLING YOUNGSTERS TO DEVELOP THEIR CREATIVE POTENTIAL
NYMT offers exceptional opportunities in pre-professional, musical theatre training for talented young people of all backgrounds aged 10 to 23 years through skills workshops, master classes and residential courses led by industry professionals, through commissioning and presentation of exciting new work and - in collaboration with some of the UK’s leading creative minds - producing bold, new realisations of major works of the core repertoire.
Take your place in over 40 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.
