Youth Music Theatre UK is the leading music theatre company for young people aged 11-21. Our principal aim, as an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, is to provide high-quality training for talented young performers, musicians, directors, writers, composers, choreographers and theatre technicians. YMT is a youth theatre like no other, producing vibrant and innovative works in the UK’s top venues and festivals with leading industry professionals. YMT is the largest commissioner of new musical theatre in the UK. Our courses offer significant personal and educational benefits to young people: developing confidence and self-esteem as well as improving communication and team-work skills whilst working in a professional environment.
