Sutton Coldfield Musical Youth Theatre (SCMYT) launched in September 2018, bringing together talented 11 to 18-year-olds from across the town and neighbouring areas. 

The company formed with a clear purpose - to provide opportunities for young people and nurture their theatrical skills while bringing high-quality productions to audiences. And that’s what we’ve been doing ever since! 

Our first show Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, went on to win NODA’s best youth production in its district, getting us off to a strong start and setting the standard for all future shows.

Our Vision

We are passionate about theatre and set out with the intention of encouraging future generations to enjoy, take part in and understand what it takes to bring productions to the stage.

Our commitment to the young people who join us is that they can hone their performing skills and technique, grow in confidence and, all the time, work as part of a team producing great theatre

Put simply – we want them to love theatre as much as we do, pass that on to others and help keep this industry alive!

Rehearsals & Costs

Our rehearsals take place every Wednesday in Sutton Coldfield (currently at Four Oaks Primary School) from 7pm until 9.30pm. Each production also requires Sunday morning rehearsals.


Cast are notified of which rehearsals they are required for in advance, but the expectation is that members are free to attend Wednesday evening and Sunday morning rehearsals as a matter of course. Of course, we recognise that there will be occasions when members cannot be at rehearsals. We therefore ask that prior warning is given of any absences and that these are kept to a minimum.

For the company to run, members pay subscription fees. These cover the rehearsal venue hire and chaperoning costs for each child, and we announce these with the launch of each show.

Fees are usually paid in one lump sum and need to be paid by BACS to the company. They can also be divided up and paid in instalments to make things easier if you wish. Please speak to us if this is your preference. 


Joining Us

To join us you must be secondary school age (aged 11 and in year 7) by the time of our show week.


Performers must audition to join the company and, once accepted, can join our shows in the chorus without any additional auditions. 

We hold auditions for principal roles for each show, and these are open to new and existing members. 

We welcome new members with each new show and hold a launch event to kick start our audition process. These events provides detail on audition and show dates, any administrative matters, and our behavioural and commitment expectations - which are high but not exhaustive. 

So, if you have a passion for theatre and want to get involved, come and join SCMYT.
