A New Home at Mountview
As part of our 15th Birthday celebrations we are delighted to move into the splendid new Mountview building in Peckham, South East London. Sitting within a leading Higher Education academy training the next generation of theatre talent is a natural place for British Youth Music Theatre. Many of our young people go on to study at Mountview (as well as the other principal UK conservatoires and academies). We have many of our creative staff in common and Mountview’s Principal, Stephen Jameson, was one of our first directors when we started as Youth Music Theatre UK back in 2003.
The building is both elegant and functional. Twenty four dance, drama and music studios surround two new theatres which will be open to the public. Theatre production companies will also have use of West End size facilities within the building which will become the starting place for many major London plays and musicals. A new coffee bar, a pizzeria and roof top restaurant complete the offer.
The BYMT offices are on the first floor. We have office space for up to 16 permanent and temporary staff. The surrounding areas provide space for meetings and relaxation. The office will also house our collection of musical instruments which will be available for low cost hire throughout the year.
In August 2019 we shall be the first external company to use the new theatre with our production of Fight Like A Girl, the female boxing musical we have developed with writer Nick Stimson and composer James Atherton.
We welcome visitors and look forward to seeing you in 2019.
