NMTC Youth was developed in 2017 by Katy Batchelor, Fiona Luck and Helen Kennedy in order to provide opportunities to the youth of Northamptonshire to experience musical theatre.

It is now run by a super talented production team made up of Katy Batchelor as Director, Rod Iliffe as musical director, Melanie Balderson as Choreographer and Phil Elvidge as Stage Manager. They are all experts in their fields who bring a wealth of experience to the team. Between them they provide expert tuition and guidance to the youth of Northamptonshire.

Many of their productions have won NODA certifications of Best Youth Production in the district of which the whole team should be congratulated.

In addition, many of the youth alumni have gone on to study various theatre subjects for higher education and some have now returned and joined the adult company. Where there are shows that include youth cast members the youth team have been instrumental in helping to fill those roles and provide further opportunities for the youngsters involved.
