Lily James, Lara Pulver and Matt Lucas to appear in National Youth Music Theatre gala
Lily James, Lara Pulver and Matt Lucas are set to appear in a gala celebrating 40 years of the National Youth Music Theatre.
James, Lucas and Pulver, who all took part in NYMT, will be joined by fellow alumni including performers Toby Jones, Gina Beck and Ben Barnes, as well as composer Jason Robert Brown.
The gala, which will take place on October 30 at London’s Adelphi Theatre, will feature NYMT members from past and present.
Called Encore, the evening will include performances celebrating NYMT’s 40 years, which have seen the youth company premiere 50 new musical theatre works.
NYMT founder and former artistic director Jeremy James Taylor said: “40 years have raced by. It’s been a rollercoaster rise – but they say time flies when you’re having fun.”
The show will be directed by Taylor and Michael Jibson.
