Stars help celebrate National Youth Theatre’s anniversary

Matt Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Timothy Dalton and Jessica Hynes will help celebrate the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain’s 60th anniversary this month.

The company’s Diamond Anniversary Gala will take place at Shaftesbury Theatre on September 18.

Other stars set to perform include Daisy Lewis and Gina McKee.

Directed by Paul Roseby, the gala – ‘The Story of our Youth’ – will take a playful look back at the last 60 years of British youth culture, with NYT at its heart.

The performance will race through the decades with scenes from the NYT archive, choreographed numbers, new alumni sketches and some extra surprise appearances from famous faces around the world throughout the night.

You can find out more about the performance from the NYT’s website.
