Hamilton Performer and YMT Alumnus, Christopher, encourages Young People to Audition for YMT!



“I would describe my experience at YMT to be one of the best times I had that year”


YMT Alumni and current original cast member of the West End’s critically-acclaimed Hamilton, Christopher Tendai, shares his own YMT experience and audition advice to young performers. His past theatre credits also include Jesus Christ Superstar, In the Heights and Hairspray, whilst he has worked in Television for Strictly Come Dancing, The Brit Awards and Rita Ora.

“Don’t be nervous auditioning when you can show everyone how talented you are! Just be yourself!”

“For people that want to be a part of YMT is to just go for it! This is your chance to better your craft and find out more about musical theatre.”

“What sets YMT apart is that it focuses on people’s individual strengths and incorporates that. I remember I got dance captain for the show we did and I couldn’t be happier! Other people incorporated playing guitar and singing acapella. Instead of everyone being the same, they relished in peoples individuality.”

If you’re lucky enough to get tickets, you can still catch our alumnus, Christopher, in Hamilton on the West End.

So as Christopher says, just go for it and book an audition for YMT before it’s too late! This is the last weekend of auditions and our audition team will be in Belfast, Liverpool, Sheffield, Southampton, Leeds London and Oxford.
