About Us

DYMT was created in 2013 to bring together young people in the area who were interested in musical theatre. As we enter our sixth year we have established ourselves as the leading musical theatre group for young people in the county. Our five previous productions of OUR HOUSE, GREASE, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA , GUYS AND DOLLS ¬†and WEST SIDE STORY have received full houses and commendable reviews. Indeed our production of ‘The Phantom of the Opera in 2015’ was awarded a NODA award for the best performed youth musical in 2015 and in addition also received , in the category of Best Musical in 2015, an Eagle Award.

Over the years the company has gone from strength to strength due to the hard work and dedication of the production team of adults and the incredible talent of the young people who perform on stage and backstage. We pride ourselves in being one of the most unique and exciting youth companies around. Our first four productions were staged at Derby Guildhall Theatre.

In 2017 we took the bold and challenging decision to move to Derby Theatre for out fifth anniversary production of ‘West Side Story’ and our acclaimed success there with full houses and standing ovations allowed us to continue our partnership with Derby Theatre and our 2018 production will again see us going back to this marvellous theatre for ‘Legally Blonde’.

We are looking for highly motivated young people between the ages of 13 - 25 as of 1st September 2018 who would be committed to performing  to the highest of standards thereby maintaining our reputation as one of the top youth musical groups in the county.

For members under 16 years of age we have a fully qualified Youth Protection Officer who is very much involved in our production and who often attends rehearsals. During the production week we have a number of qualified chaperones for those under 16.

We are also looking for anyone who is interested in technical theatre and who does not wish to work on stage but would be happy to help out in a number of ways backstage. Please email us.

Please ensure that you read all the information on this website so that you are aware of the commitment you are undertaking.
