What's Coming Up in our OnStage children's musical theatre programme

NYTC Presents Oliver

We're now counting down to our first performance of Oliver! in June!

See details of our performances for schools.

NYTC runs two OnStage training programmes each year, both ending with full-scale performances at the Aotea Centre. Registration is now full for our first programme of 2017, based around performances of the classic musical Oliver! at the Aotea Centre.

Our second programme of the year, Peter Pan, begins in August. Due to high demand (we reached over half-full in January, more than 6 months out from the programme), we have temporarily closed registration until closer to the programme start-date. Follow us on Facebook to make sure you don't miss out on hearing when we open registration again!

The all-access training programme where anyone can perform in professional theatre!

NYTC's OnStage is an all-access training programme for children and young adults aged between 7 - 21 - you don't need to audition to be part of the chorus, and lead roles are auditioned from within the cast. Rehearsals are broken up through the day by age group, and all of the skills you need to participate in the show are taught by our experienced tutors. Rehearsals will be mostly Sunday afternoons, with lead rehearsals on Thursday evenings.

We run special performances for schools at a heavily discounted educational rate. If your school is interested in attending please get in touch. For examples of our educational packs please visit our Education Centre.
