KEEPING THE LIGHTS ON

IN REHEARSALS
REGISTRATIONS CLOSED

"Keeping the Lights On" celebrates 15 years of productions for the National Youth Theatre and culminates in another spectacular season performing at Auckland's Aotea Centre, proudly sponsored by Risland. This Variety Show is the result of reframing our "Little Mermaid" programme, due to the Covid-19 lockdowns. Featuring a cast of over 200 young performers, and guest artists Carl Doy (Piano by Candlelight, Dancing with the Stars) and Edward Laurenson (Disney Recording Artist & NYT Alumni), this is a showcase of the best of musical theatre, and a celebration of youth and the arts.
