08 September 2017

Emily White (L5N) performed with Youth Music Theatre UK for the second year running in August.

Youth Music Theatre UK, the leading music theatre company for young people aged 11-21, is a national performing arts company that specialises in creating brand new music theatre. They work across the UK and Ireland with leading industry professionals to offer unique opportunities and high-quality training to young singers, actors, dancers and musicians as well as emerging artists and stage technicians. Roles in their productions are highly sought after as a result, with applications from across the country.

Emily was cast in the world premiere of A Teenage Opera - an rock opera concept album recorded at Abbey Road studios 50 years ago, which was revived and reworked into a full scale musical by the YMT creative team. The original composer, Mark Wirtz came over from America to advise and watch the show.
