Youth Music Theatre Scotland was launched in 2008 and is a charity registered in Scotland (SC039827). We are dedicated to the development of children and young people, and those who help them learn, through creative learning opportunities. Our company is artistically led, offering opportunities to participate in, generate, and engage with, all forms of theatre and film involving music. The Company works throughout Scotland and the North of England offering workshops and skills building programmes alongside fully staged production projects, and occasional outreach programmes. Every child is welcome to apply to join and we never audition to take part.
YMTS is a registered Scottish Charity and a Company limited by guarantee, and we are always interested to hear of potential fundraising and performance opportunities – if you know of any please contact us!
We have a base in the Arts Hub in the Postings Shopping Centre in Kirkcaldy in Fife.
