Irish Youth Musical Theatre (IYMT)
Irish Youth Musical Theatre (IYMT) is Ireland’s National Musical Theatre Training Company for young talented actors aged 14 to 24 years and is operating across both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Run in partnership with the Royal Irish Academy of Music, IYMT is offering professional training opportunities to Irish artists across all corners of the country through masterclasses, short courses and their National Youth Production.
IYMT hopes to find, nourish and showcase the next generation of musical theatre talent in Ireland, and – under the tuition of the finest creatives and coaches direct from the West End and Broadway – help bridge the gap to their potential careers on international stages.
What About Us and the Irish Youth Musical Theatre are collaborating in the development of the musical including the development of the original story and characters and interpreting the story so that it can be performed as a stage musical. Workshops commenced in January 2021 giving the young artists an opportunity to showcase their talent, contribute to the creative and participate in the live musical.
