BYMT's Creative Trainee Scheme (for 20+ years) aims to help emerging artists build up their work experience by helping on professionally-staged productions. 

Each placement involves working alongside our professional artistic and technical staff on residential courses for young people across the UK. The shows usually involve up to 40 young performers. The placements are ideally suited to conservatoire/university graduates or final year students wishing to develop a career in music theatre or related areas and who are committed to working with young people.

The productions involve young people selected from auditions across the UK and these projects will be creating new music theatre in a variety of genres. Production courses generally run for two/three weeks during July and August.

The programme of activity will vary but each trainee will have a considerable level of responsibility, the exact nature of which will be decided upon in conjunction with the director, designer, deputy stage manager or musical director of the project.

Each trainee will receive accommodation, food, travel during their placement as well as a £85 per week allowance.
