Founded in 1976, the National Youth Music Theatre offers exceptional opportunities in pre-professional, musical theatre training for talented young people aged 11 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.
These opportunities exist for stage performers, musicians, technicians and stage crew and, through our Creative Team Mentorship programme, for aspiring directors, musical directors, choreographers and designers.
The National Youth Music Theatre represents the very best in work with young people through musical theatre enabling thousands of youngsters across the UK to develop both their creative and personal potential, leading Andrew Lloyd Webber to dub it “the finest youth music theatre in the world”.
