NYT Members, Family and Friends
In 2018 a group called Nillumbik Youth Productions emerged and started running NYT.
Nillumbik Youth Productions is a non-for-profit incorporation operated by youth to provide accessible and inclusive opportunities for people to create and perform theatre and other art forms.
Nillumbik Youth Theatre (NYT)
In previous years NYT have conducted a senior show, junior show and workshop programs. In 2019, NYT conducted the one all-inclusive show, ‘All Shook Up’.
The values of NYT remain the same, including a person-centred program designed to build skills of resilience, flexibility and adaptability, connection to self and community, reflective and creative practice and the articulation of personal goals. These skills are crucial to the success, health and happiness of young people who face the challenges of globalised workforce economies, diverse wok portfolios and diverse societies as identified by Foundation for Young Australians and VicHealth.
Every member of NYT has a role to play within the cast, crew or production team.
2020 is presenting some interesting challenges for NYP as they rehearse for the upcoming live stage performance this September during the current COVID-19 restrictions.
Nillumbik Youth Productions cast have been learning their dances and songs virtually following online tutorials from their musical directors and choreographer in order to be ready to perform for their upcoming scheduled live production ‘We Will Rock You’.
In addition they are conducting weekly video conference sessions with the cast to read over scenes and discuss blocking. Nillumbik Youth Productions are confident that if lockdown restrictions are lifted they will be able to successfully perform in September, however the committee continues to meet weekly to make decisions about the evolving situation and has an action plan in place to shift the production dates if this is required.
