BYMT acts as a stepping stone for talented young people aged 11-21 into conservatoire training and employment in the theatre and music industries. It is also a national performing arts company specialising in creating brand new music theatre with a back catalogue of over 100 new productions and an Olivier nomination for Best New Musical. BYMT is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation and one of the Department for Education’s eight National Youth Music Organisations.
