Youth Music Theatre UK National Auditions 2018
Aged 11-21 and love performing?
Start your stage career with Youth Music Theatre UK. Audition and be part of an incredible season of new musical productions.
Every year in January and February YMT will be touring the UK and Ireland in search of talented young performers to take part on a two or three-week summer residential course in Musical Theatre Production, and star in one of 8 brand-new musicals. You’ll train with leading theatre practitioners to create a full-scale musical theatre show, performed to public audiences at top theatre venues across the UK and Ireland.
This incredible season will feature some of the biggest titles in British theatre, music and literature, including: Help! Get me out of this Musical, a pop-rock musical with a twist; Barrack Room Ballads a vivid, emotionally-charged production inspired by Kipling, with music by renowned composer Connor Mitchell; Paper Boy an enchanting coming of age musical-drama set against the gritty backdrop of the Shankill Road in 1970’s Belfast; And, A Winter’s Tale, a musical reimagining of Shakespeare’s classic with music by Howard Goodall, one of Britain’s most distinguished and versatile composers.
YMT has launched the careers thousands of young, ambitious performers including Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Charlotte Ritchie, to name but a few! No experience necessary, open to absolutely anyone aged 11-21.
"YMT has been a major and formative part of my life, an experience which I would readily recommend to anyone with an interest in musical theatre. It's a wonderful opportunity to work with some great industry professionals with real insight into the world of musical theatre." - Patrick, 19, YMT participant from Abingdon

"YMT was such a fun exciting and most off all a valuable experience. The two week project has allowed me to walk away with new technical performance skills that I can now put into practice." - Lily, 5, YMT participant from Norwich
"YMT is like no other theatre company as you get to help create the show rather than just be in it so it helps you develop your artistry and creativity. Overall YMT has given me an insight into the industry by working with professionals in a high intensity environment." - Katie, 16, YMT participant from Aberdeen
