The National Youth Theatre
The National Youth Theatre (NYT) is the leading platform for training young acting talent and was the first youth theatre in the world. For the past 56 years we have worked on Shakespearean texts with some of the finest British talent including Dame Helen Mirren, David Suchet, Rosamund Pike, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sir Derek Jacobi, and many more.
"By reaching out to illuminate and invest in the ambition and creativity of young people from a diverse range of backgrounds, this vital national organisation enables emerging generations to express themselves and reach their full potential." Sir Ian McKellen
