Teachers are extremely important to us as they support us in encouraging young people into the BYMT Company, and inspire the creative development of young people in schools up and down the country. We offer a number of ways for teachers and schools to work with us and in return we provide opportunities with the company.
DISCOVER MUSIC THEATRE | Auditions & Careers Day
Discover Music Theatre, our in-school auditions and careers day, immerses students into the world of theatre and aims to share our passion for theatre outlining the range of careers open to potential students in professional theatre and, by extension, into film, advertising and TV. The day includes industry careers advice and a full audition for BYMT productions. Successful students will perform in one our 2023 Season of New Music Theatre.
