British Youth Music Theatre (BYMT) is the leading musical theatre company for young people. We work across the UK and Ireland with West End professionals to offer unique opportunities and high-quality training to young people. Since 2003 we have trained over 8,000 young people, many of whom have successfully entered the creative industries such as Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Lauren Samuels, Charlotte Ritchie, Jack Bence, Lucy Griffiths, Luke McCall, Bradley Jaden and many more!
AUDITIONS - THEY'RE BOOKING OUT!
This year we are holding online auditions instead of our usual face-to-face auditions and they are booking out rapidly. We are looking for talented young performers and musicians to perform in our next season of new music theatre. Auditions are open to anyone aged 11-21 and no previous experience is necessary. The auditions consist of a 2-hour online workshop led by top theatre professionals. During the workshop you will first undertake a series of warm up exercises, then learn a new song and sing it back to the auditions team, learn a short movement section and do some acting exercises. Our team will learn a lot from this about your abilities, any past training and all that raw talent you can show off. You can also send us a short video of additional material if you want it to be considered after your online audition; you can send this in at any time but it must be with us by the Tuesday after your audition - but it is not essential. Start your stage career now! BOOK YOUR SESSION AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.
Do you speak French?
This year we are also looking for some people with a good level of French (conversational), so if you have a love for musical theatre and the "language of Molière", join our auditions!

AUDITIONS BOOKING OUT!
Our online auditions have been a brilliant success and many sessions are now full. We are adding more dates and sessions in as fast as we can. Dates are now available mostly at weekends to Sunday 21st March. There are a few half term places available. If needs be we will add more dates in to allow as many young people as possible to take part. Book your place below!
WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM SUCCESSFUL?
If you are successful, you will be invited to join one of our exciting musical theatre productions over Easter or during the Summer. These are all residential courses and take place across the UK.You will be living and breathing theatre 24/7 for 2-3 weeks. BYMT is a new writing company so you will be developing new work that no one has seen before (except when we revive our own shows and even then we often rewrite them). Some of our shows are commissioned new work and some are devised; whichever way, stand by to test your creativity.You will work with West End professionals to build a full-scale musical show from the ground up and perform in the UK’s most prestigious venues and festivals! You will also get a Grade 8 Certificate from Trinity College London. There’s no experience like it! AUDITION NOW!
