YMT has just wrapped up it’s 2018 Summer season and that means that hundreds of young actors have finished the summer of a lifetime! Over the course of just a few months young performers from all over the country gathered to create critically acclaimed and unique pieces of theatre, varying from well known works like Shakespeare's “Winters Tale” to new and devised pieces such as “Wild,” where students were involved in creating original this original piece of theatre from start to finish. Take a look at what one actresses tweeted about her time working on the piece "Wild" this summer with YMT.
"Just finished an amazing two week course at @ymtuk performing our devised piece of WILD #YMTWILD with an incredibly talented all womens cast and an amazing creative team. I have made some amazing friends and learnt loads of new skils it's heart breaking to realise it's over"
During their time with YMT students receive training from the industry's top professionals that allows them learn and improve their performance technique. Additionally, students were encouraged to branch out and cultivate a strong sense of creativity and community when working on the shows. Students often leave us with many new skills they can apply to their future professional careers and even more new friends that they’ll have for a lifetime. See what these students had to say about working with the actors and creative team on “Barrack Room Ballads” this past August.
@EmilyGraceActor tweeted "#barrackroomballads has been the expierence of a lifetime and I cannot thank the creative team and cast enough. I have developed not only with skill but as a person too and I cannot wait fort eh future. You're all stars and I love you all millions. Thank you @ymtuk"
@maddieematthews also added "@tmtuk never fails to be an incredible expierence. learnt so much and have met and worked with the most wonderful talented people, beyond greatful x #YMTBarrackRoomBallads @NAM_London"
“Barrack Room Ballads” was called “an impressive, quite original theatrical idea which sits conceptually, and very thoughtfully, somewhere between Cats and Oh” by the Musical Theatre Review.
