Hello and welcome to Next Generation Youth Theatre

NGYT was set up in early 2012 by Laura and David Lloyd with the purpose of providing high quality, accessible and inclusive dance and drama opportunities to the young people of Luton.
As a CIC (community interest company) NGYT not only recognise the importance and impact of the arts on young people but also lead and collaborate on creative projects for the benefit of the wider community.

  • “What an honour it was to create and perform alongside NGYT a most brilliant youth theatre with talent and commitment in equal measure!”

    Nathan Curry – Tangled Feet

  • “What you have done, not only for her but all of the young people that walk through your doors is just inspiring, as a parent deep down all you want for your child is for them to be happy and to follow their dreams, and with your professionalism, and knowledge you are able to really connect with, and transform them into the young people they should be whilst still instilling the discipline that they need to achieve within the industry.”

  • “You two, your company and your participants are a credit to your town and you deserve all the love.”

    Jamie Arden – Executive Producer Watford Palace Theatre

  • “A fantastic organisation with a ‘you can do’ ethos at the heart of everything.”

    Parent

  • “You guys have been an absolute delight to work with! I have been so impressed and moved by your enthusiasm and commitment throughout.”

    Celine McKillon –
    Project Manager Imagine Festivals

  • “I think being a part of NGYT has made me more confident and made me realise that even though I’m not very big yet I can still do a lot.”

    Lenni – Student

  • “NGYT surprised me. I had high expectations given their previous work, but was not expecting them to get the crux of this complex issue and portray it in such an effective and sensitive way. Their insightful writing and the sheer power of their performance had exactly the desired effect on our audience.”

    Simon Bullock – Policy Works

  • “NGYT is unlike anything else out there. You genuinely care and work with the young people and it has changed my son’s life. I don’t know how he would have been able to cope with all the complexities of teenage life without having NGYT there. It’s been a lifesaver and a haven and has given him so many skills and abilities to take with him for the whole of his life. You should be on NHS prescription!”

    Parent

  • “Caring just doesn’t stop when the kids leave the dance hall… it’s ongoing. Like they are your own!
    Clearly see the kids have the upmost respect for you! Always positive vibes!

    Parent

  • “Such a lovely show! Full of passion and energy! I have one buzzing, happy girl and proud rest of the family. Thanks Laura, David and all the NGYT crew for all the work you put in and the opportunities you give to kids.”

    Parent

  • “Another fantastic show by the NGYT Family. Absolutely brilliant. You guys are amazing.”

    Parent

  • “Having found you three years ago (thank goodness!) as a quiet, shy young person with low self esteem, she has transformed into someone who has a passion, a fire in her belly and a determination to succeed, and is beginning to gain the much needed self confidence and self belief.”
