NYMT returns to The Other Palace this Summer

Posted 9th May 2019

The award-winning National Youth Music Theatre will present Parade, Legend Trippers and Anything Goes at The Other Palace this August.

We’re excited to announce the National Youth Music Theatre‘s 2019 Summer season, which continues their annual residency at The Other Palace for a third consecutive year and demonstrates their shared commitment to provide exceptional opportunities for young people in musical theatre.

The 2019 season comprises three outstanding musicals:


Amid religious intolerance, political injustice and racial tension, the Tony Award-winning Parade explores the endurance of love and hope against all odds. With a book by acclaimed playwright Alfred Uhry and a haunting score by Jason Robert Brown, Parade is a moving examination of the darkest corners of America’s history.

Wed 7 – Sat 10 Aug

Legend Trippers

A group of high school heroes band together to conquer haunted sites. But when a new girl comes to town, they find themselves in a legend of their own. This new musical by Scott Gilmour and Claire McKenzie uses energetic storytelling and song to examine the legends we are passing on today.

Wed 14 – Sat 17 Aug

Anything Goes

Music, dance, laughs, and the age-old tale of Boy Meets Girl – no musical puts it on stage better than Anything Goes. A hilarious shipboard romp, wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s most magical scores, Anything Goes is Delightful, Delicious, and De-Lovely.

Wed 21 – 24 Aug

Jeremy Walker, producer of NYMT, said, “For over 40 years NYMT has shown unrivalled commitment to the provision of opportunity in the field of musical theatre, both for young people as participants and for writers and composers. We’re delighted to carry that work forwards in partnership with The Other Palace. Our shared aim is to extend our programme for the benefit of young people of all backgrounds and to encourage emerging writers, providing opportunities for them to work on a large scale alongside our experienced dramaturgs and directors and, of course, with an outstanding young company of actors and musicians.

Chris Harper, Director of Programming at The Other Palace, said, “The award-winning National Youth Music Theatre represents the very best in work with young people in musical theatre and, from its more recent beginnings, The Other Palace has encouraged and showcased brand new musical theatre writing, nurturing up and coming writing and composing talent. Together the two organisations share an enviable reputation for new musical theatre and for excellence. I’m delighted they are here again this summer and look forward to future summer seasons at The Other Palace.
