NYMT presents Little Me at Bloomsbury

First Published 17 April 2008, Last Updated 18 April 2008

There is a chance to see some of the future stars of the West End in performance this summer as the National Youth Music Theatre brings its latest show, Little Me, to the Bloomsbury theatre from 28-30 August.

Cy Coleman’s light-hearted comic musical Little Me premiered on Broadway in 1962 and was last seen in the West End in 1984. The story follows the rise and fall in the fortunes of Belle Schlumpfert, the rags-to-riches heroine who has monstrous bad luck. The score includes the songs Real Live Girl, I’ve Got Your Number and Deep Down Inside. This production is directed by Caroline Leslie, Artistic Associate at the NYMT and former Director of Youth Theatre at Salisbury Playhouse.

The National Youth Music Theatre was founded in 1976 with the aim of producing music theatre productions and workshops with young people of all backgrounds as participants. Since its creation the NYMT has produced numerous shows – last year’s production was Fiddler On The Roof, staged at the Bridewell. Among the NYMT’s alumni are many current stars of London theatre, including Tom Hollander (Landscape With Weapon), Connie Fisher (The Sound Of Music), Kerry Ellis (Wicked), Laura Michelle Kelly (The Lord Of The Rings), Amy Nuttall (Boeing Boeing) and Sheridan Smith (Little Shop Of Horrors).

Little Me is sponsored by the British Record Industry Trust (BRIT), the charitable arm of trade body BPI. The BRIT Trust was created in 1989 with the mission to support young people in music and education.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.
