Outreach in Schools - British Youth Music Theatre

BYMT in Schools

BRITISH YOUTH MUSIC THEATRE IN SCHOOLS

We firmly believe that everyone should be able to participate in the performing arts regardless of their background, which is why we offer bespoke workshops to schools using our pool of professional artists. BYMT has been established as one of the leading youth arts organisations in the UK for over a decade, primarily because of the highly-experienced artists we work with.

BYMT'S SCHOOLS' PROGRAMME AIMS TO ACHIEVE 3 KEY OBJECTIVES
  • To help schools deliver performing arts education in times of ever-more depleted departmental budgets
  • To establish a relationship with as many schools as possible
  • To fulfil a remit to make talented young people more aware of our work and the benefits of becoming part of the BYMT Company

To discuss how we can work with your school or group of schools please call the office on 020 8563 7725 or email on mail@bymt.org

BYMT is currently offering the following workshops.

School Music Theatre Workshop and Audition

This Workshop and Audition Day gives school or college students the opportunity to spend 3 hours exploring the world of musical theatre – singing, dancing and acting. They will explore the range of careers open to them in professional theatre and, by extension, into film and TV. Details here.

School Theatre Industry Careers Day

This School Theatre Industry Careers Day immerses students into the theatre. We will aim to share our passion for Musical Theatre outlining the range of careers open to them in professional theatre and, by extension, into film and TV. Details here.

Bespoke Workshops

We are able to create bespoke workshops for schools in drama, singing and/or dance. Details here.

    Since our sessions are bespoke, in the past teachers have requested a wide range of workshop topics including:

    • Introduction to Devising
    • Shakespeare
    • Helping with School Plays/Pantomimes/Musicals
    • Practitioner Case Studies (Berkoff, Brecht, Artaud, Stanislavski etc.)

    We are aware that school curricula dictate needs and so have identified some key workshops that would be beneficial for each term below:

    “I love the diversity of young people I work with in these groups and enabling them to develop skills and fulfil their full potential as musical theatre performers. Promoting strong self-belief is key; I love to see young people overcoming fears...”
