Our Work


Your contribution could make a huge difference to what we are able to achieve – here are some examples of projects that require your support.

Inspiring young people’s creativity

Young people are trained by leading theatre industry practitioners about the creation and performing of new music theatre whilst developing their confidence, team work, communication skills and professionalism.

Open to everyone

YMT is for EVERYONE! We need to make sure that we have enough funds to provide bursaries for around 40% of company members who have low family income. We operate a comprehensive bursary scheme and support young people with fundraising advice.

Supporting emerging artists

We offer students and recent graduates the chance to work alongside our professional staff on our shows, backstage and in arts administration. This is often the beginning of a career in theatre – as a composer, director, designer, choreographer, stage manager, technician, producer, project manager even in marketing, PR, graphic design or fundraising!

Commissioning new music theatre

Youth Music Theatre UK produces high-quality new music theatre by commissioning leading and emerging composers who work in a range of exciting genres, breaking boundaries and creating new music theatre which contributes to the development of the art form.

None of our work is possible without securing £400,000 a year from public funders, trusts and foundations, companies and individuals. If you are able to give a donation to us, we would be most grateful, and you can give in the following two ways:
