The National Youth Theatre has been producing ground breaking theatre since 1956. In 2012 we were commissioned to create the first theatrical Team Welcome Ceremonies in Olympic and Paralympic history. In recent years we’ve also created pioneering work at venues including: the Old Vic Tunnels, Europe’s biggest social housing building, the National Theatre, Battersea Power Station, the Shanghai World Expo,¬† the Unicorn Theatre, the FIFA Club World Cup, the 2008 Beijing Olympic Closing Ceremony, the Soho Theatre and the National Centre for Performing Arts in Beijing.

We’ve commissioned and performed work by leading writers including James Graham, Tom Stoppard, Rebecca Lenkiewicz, Sarah Solemani, Moira Buffini, Stella Duffy and Mark Ravenhill. We’ve also collaborated with theatre-makers at Kneehigh, the National Theatre, Cheek by Jowl, Bristol Old Vic Theatre and Phoenix Dance Company.
Our world renowned alumni include actors: Helen Mirren, Daniel Craig, Derek Jacobi, Catherine Tate, Matt Smith and Sarah Solemani, directors: Michael Grandage and Matthew Warchus, fashion designer Gareth Pugh, producer Bill Kenwright and broadcasters Krishnan Guru-Murthy and Jamie Theakston.
Graduates from our technical training have gone on to work on leading shows in the West End and around the world, from the National Theatre’s Warhorse to the RSC’s Les Mis√©rables.
