Ryedale Youth Theatre 2021

Ryedale Youth Theatre was formed in 1991 and is a voluntary organization (registered charity no. 1053362). The main purpose of our work is to train young people (age 8-18) in the Ryedale and York areas in all aspects of the performing arts, in particular musical theatre, both on stage and behind the scenes.

We have reluctantly and sadly decided that Ryedale Youth Theatre will not be able to perform “Oliver!” this year. With the current guidelines we are unable to meet for rehearsals and we are, of course, unsure when we will be able to get together. We have decided to ‘retire’ “Oliver!” for a while, we have the set and costumes so it’s “au revoir” but not goodbye. We all love the show and we’re sure that it will be wonderful when we decide the time is right to bring it to Malton.

The Milton Rooms has been booked for Ryedale Youth Theatre’s Easter 2022 production – it’s a long time away but we will WILL HOPEFULLY BE THERE with a brand new show if it’s safe to do so with all the young members, helpers and audience.

This year it is Ryedale Youth Theatre’s 30th Anniversary and we want to mark it in a rather special way as soon as it’s possible to do so. We have a few ideas in mind and we are working hard ‘behind the scenes’ to make them happen. We look forward to sharing them with you all!

Our best wishes to you all and please stay safe,

The Ryedale Youth Theatre Team
