Members learn by being part of a working theatre company
While some ex-company members have gone on to have successful careers in theatre and television, including our most notable alumni TV’s favourite host, Joel Dommett, the vast majority have pursued a future in an array of other industries. They tell us that working through a production at NYTC gave them skills which directly contributed to success in their chosen careers.
Celebrate our 50th production.
Originally founded in 1975, the group regularly performed as a feature of Thornbury Arts Festival. Impressively, Roald Dahl was in the audience at the company’s first production, which happened to be his work, ‘The Fantastic Mr. Fox!’
After becoming an independent company in 1986, NYTC focussed on offering adolescents the chance to perform to a live fee-paying audience: so far, producing over 50 shows including, Legally Blonde, Seussical, Anything Goes, Les Misérables, and Grease!
