About 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.
NGYT believe in a two tier approach which enables us to provide both engagement and development in the arts locally.
Tier One: 4-18 years. Arts For All. Our sessions are mixed ability with the aim of learning new skills, building confidence, having fun and finding your own creative voice.
Tier Two: 14-24 years. Auditioned Companies. We have a youth theatre and youth dance company. We create high quality, professionally minded work with the aim to capture and reflect the creativity, thoughts and stories of young people locally. Our companies create and produce their own original work. Together with a creative team of professionals the company decide on the message or story they want to deliver and work collaboratively to devise their shows. Shows are then performed in professional venues and toured locally and nationally.
NGYT create Theatre and Dance with young people. Our work is always written and devised collaboratively by members of the team or supported by external arts practitioners.
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 wider communities.
NGYT also deliver and create bespoke drama and dance programmes and performances across schools and colleges within Luton and the surrounding areas.
