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 fifth year we have established ourselves as the leading musical theatre group for young people in the county. Our four previous productions of OUR HOUSE, GREASE, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and GUYS AND DOLLS 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. Each of our previous productions has been performed in the Guildhall Theatre, Derby.

As we head towards our fifth anniversary production we are delighted to announce that we will be moving to the Derby Theatre - the main theatre in the centre of Derby with seating capacity of 500 - to perform West Side Story - probably the best musical ever written.

We are looking for highly motivated young people between the ages of 13 - 25 as of 1st September 2017 who would be committed to performing this world famous musical 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 enclosed information so that you are aware of the commitment you are undertaking.
