SPOTLIGHT: Welcome our London Summer Camp Choreographer, Lizzie Crarer.


Youth Music Theatre UK has an unwavering reputation for creating the brightest new musical theatre projects and courses, led by trailblazing creative teams from West End, Fringe, Repertoire and Broadway theatre. And in the year of our 15th anniversary, this is no exception, especially in the case of our London Summer Camp, taking place 20 – 25 August.

As the choreographer of our London Summer Camp this year, Lizzie Crarer has an exceptional breadth of work under her belt. From running her own performance company (Heroine Projects Presents), to being a member of the renowned laboratory theatre ensemble, Eden’s Cave, Lizzie brings outstanding innovative techniques and experimental visions to her creative work. We’re looking forward to Lizzie choreographing our very own RESITANCE musical at YMT’s London Summer Camp (20 – 25 August).

An intense and creative course in singing, acting and dancing, Lizzie will put the 11-17 year olds through their paces by directing them in a brand-new musical in a week. Building confidence and developing key performing arts skills, the young people will excel under the direction of Lizzie and the rest of the experienced creative team. 

Lizzie has also assisted in directing plays at the Salisbury Playhouse and National Theatre, along with performing herself in productions such as Hamlet, Othello, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s at Theatre Royal Haymarket, to name a few. Lizzie is also part of Bath’s Natural Theatre Company, which specializes in outdoor and site specific performance.

There is still an opportunity to BOOK ON to the London Summer Camp to train under the direction of Lizzie and the other creatives, but be sure to book soon as spaces are limited! We also have camps this year in Wiltshire, Edinburgh, Leeds, Hertfordshire, and Surrey. If you are too old to attend any of our Summer Camps, but are interested in being trained by our industry professionals, consider booking on to our London Boot Camp (13-18 August for ages 17-21).
