"The National Youth Theatre is a grand old lady of 60, but it remains the cradle of Britain’s hottest young theatrical talent."
Time Out

We are proud to nurture future generations of performers, directors, writers, producers, designers and backstage staff. We aim to make our work accessible to all who want to take part. Our flagship talent development programmes – The NYT REP Company and Playing Up – are justly acclaimed by our industry peers.

We develop new audiences for our work, on stage, on film and online.

Our alumni are employed in theatres and in the wider creative industries across the UK and worldwide. We train and employ youth theatre practitioners, many of whom were members of NYT, strengthening the country’s creative workforce.

Each year, we earn 2/3 of our income but we need to raise the remaining third from private and public sources. The support of charitable foundations is crucial to the achievement of this target.

We are very grateful to those foundations who support us.  

In 2016 these include; The Allen & Overy Foundation, The Barcapel Foundation, Clifford Chance Foundation, The Clothworkers’ Foundation, Peter De Haan Charitable Trust, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, The Leverhulme Trust, Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, The Mercers’ Company, The David Pearlman Charitable Foundation, Schroder Charity Trust, The Henry Smith Charity, Sophie’s Silver Lining Fund, Teale Charitable Trust and The Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation.
