The National Youth Theatre of Great Britain is a world-leading youth arts organisation. Established in 1956 as the world’s first youth theatre, we have nurtured the talent of hundreds of thousands of young people over 60 years. We inspire, nurture and showcase exceptional performers and theatre technicians from Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commissioning brave and relevant new writing and reinterpreting classic stories for our time.

We are as ambitious as the young people we serve, platforming young talent on West End stages, in stadiums world-wide and at iconic sites both home and aboard.

Our world renowned alumni include: Helen Mirren, Daniel Craig, Colin Firth, Rosamund Pike, Daniel Day-Lewis, Orlando Bloom, Catherine Tate, Ben Kingsley, Ashley Jensen, Derek Jacobi, Timothy Dalton, David Walliams, Matt Lucas, Hugh Bonneville, Matt Smith, Zawe Ashton, Chiwetel Ejiofor and many more. 

 

National Youth Theatre is a registered charity number 306075 / SCO43665

It is the policy of NYT to safeguard the welfare of all young people with which it works by protecting them from neglect and physical, sexual and emotional harm. Read our full safeguarding statement here.

“The National Youth Theatre at this moment in time is incredibly important because the way my business is going, it’s the prerogative only of kids who have got money. It was my way in because we didn’t have money to send me to drama school.”

Support our work...

National Youth Theatre gives young people the opportunity to learn as much about themselves and how to relate to others, as they do about acting and technical theatre. Whilst some of our members go on to become well known faces of stage and screen, many others go on to be great lawyers, journalists, doctors, teachers, entrepreneurs, CEOs and much more. Last year NYT awarded £1OO,OOO of bursaries to young people in need. Supporting NYT Bursary Fund will help to ensure that financial barriers do not prevent young people from reaching their full potential. Help a young person stand out from the crowd.
