There's a 3.00pm and 7.30pm performance next Friday, 12th March, and also the change to participate in a workshop with a former West End leading performer.

You can book your tickets here 👉 https://wlv.ticketsolve.com/shows/873626038

If you'd like to participate in the workshop, drop me an e-mail at [email protected] and I'll book you on.

Thanks all and look forward to seeing you there! 🙂

‘Jason Robert Brown’s Drama Desk Award winning musical, The Last Five Years, is an intimate look at the relationship between two New Yorkers; an actress and a writer, who fall in and out of love over the course of five years.

This production of ‘The Last Five Years’ is presented by Tread Productions and stars real- life married couple Helen Noble (Hollyoaks) and Graham Tudor (West End leading actor).

The production is directed by Iestyn Arwel, along with musical supervision by Jordan Alexander and gained outstanding reviews in June 2017 during a run at Liverpool’s Epstein Theatre.
Afternoon all,

If you are planning to come to the 3.00pm matinee performance of Matilda Jr. by Wolverhampton Youth Music Theatre this afternoon, please note that parking in Wolverhampton is at a premium today so we recommend you allow plenty of time for travel to get here in time for curtain up 🙂

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

We are sure you managed to melt a few faces during a fantastic opening performance 🤘There maybe a few tickets left if you are quick for another fabulous nights entertainment!

As most of you know this is our 20th year and that makes it a great opportunity for us to reflect. We would absolutely love it if members past and present, performers, techies, helpers could write a paragraph for us. It could be anything you want. Did you gain friends, confidence, a career or a partner? It doesn't matter if you did one show or lots, we are proud of you all and would love to hear your stories. Please pass this on to anyone you might know as it wont let me tag everyone. You can post it publicly on here or pm me with it if you prepare. We would like to do a display for the September show, so you could share your favourite pictures too!
Good luck to everyone involved tonight!! ❤️I’m hoping to come and watch tomorrow if there’s space 😊 xx
Absolutely fantastic show. Well done everyone. # # #
Another brilliant performance of Memphis tonight. Wow. You could not help but leave with smile on your face and a little bit more joy in the heart. Well done all....

The Wormwoods (and Rudolpho) are living it up in Spain, Trunchbull signed the house back over to Miss Honey and Matilda, and Bruce never wants to see another chocolate cake!

Who we are...

WYMT was established in 1999 by Michael Pike and Lesley Woodyer as part of the outreach offered by Wolverhampton Music School. 20 Years later and we are an official hub partner of the Music Service, who provide vital funding for our activities from Arts Council and Wolverhampton City Council. We are ran by a team of arts and educational professionals who have mentored and supported many of our members over the years to go onto successful careers on stage, behind the scenes and in many other creative and media pursuits, which many say is down to the opportunities and training WYMT provided for them.

We currently have a long established Senior group who meet for two weeks in August to stage a full scale musical production at The Arena Theatre in September each year and a newly launched junior group who will perform at the Music School in May Half term, following a week of workshops and rehearsals.
