So here it is! Our next exciting production! Our House 'The Madness Musical'

Email us to sign up for the pre-audition workshop: yorklightyouth@yorklight.com


We are very pleased to introduce Darren Roberts as our new Director for ‘Our House’ and are very much looking forward to working with him. Here’s a message from Darren:

I am really excited to be asked to direct "Our House" which, as you can see from the photo, is a show I have been in myself a few years ago and it’s a cracker!

You may have seen me in shows around York, recently 9 to 5, Legally Blond, Hairspray, Spring Awakening and Company. I have also done a load of shows in Harrogate and Leeds. I professionally trained as an actor at Arts Ed which gave me the opportunity to work with fab companies like the RSC and The National. I have been teaching drama for quite some years now: post 16, secondary and primary, and I am really looking forward to meeting you all and working with you all at York Light Youth.

Hope to see you all at the workshop and please spread the word.

Darren x

About York Light Youth!


York Light Youth is the Youth Branch of York Light that focuses on theatrical productions for 11 to 18 year-olds.
Established in July 2013, our aim is to nurture and develop young performers aged 11-18 who share our passion for musical theatre by providing them with the opportunity to take part in high quality musical productions. York Light Youth members who are 16+ are also invited to perform in the main shows at The York Theatre Royal.
We have an experienced Director, Musical Director and Choreographer spearheading the creative side and YLY is supported by the main York Light Opera Company Management Team.

As well as putting on an annual show, York Light Youth also has its own choir which meets regularly throughout the year and performs in the annual Choir Festival at Joseph Rowntree theatre, at York's St Sampson's Centre, and other concerts in York.

About Us:


York Light Opera Society was formed in 1953 to perform the challenging new musicals of the time. In 2003 we became York Light Opera Company Limited for financial reasons, although we remain an amateur group. Throughout our history we have built an excellent reputation for producing shows to a professional standard and the Company takes great pride in continuing its tradition of bringing new musicals to York as well as breathing new life into old favourites.

Come along and see what we do!
