Musical Youth Company of Oxford
The Musical Youth Company of Oxford (MYCO) is a teenage musical theatre group based in Oxford, with members coming from all over Oxfordshire. We currently have around 50 members, aged between 12 and 18, from a wide range of social and ethnic backgrounds, and produce and perform shows and concerts in and around the Oxford area.
The company's last show was 42nd Street when the company performed to sell out audiences at the Oxford Playhouse. Meanwhile, read the reviews in the Oxford Times and Oxford Mail or check out some pictures from the dress rehearsal here.
Please explore our website to find out more about the company and our plans for the future.

What the press says ...
"The 47-strong company performs with most impressive zest and confidence ... Altogether, you’ll definitely leave the theatre with a smile on your face.”
Oxford Times, Guys and Dolls, 2014
“Surpassed all expectations and left everyone with a smile on their face … Throughout the cast there was not one single weak link – every performer was talented and professional, and the resulting performance was stunning – creative, amusing and perfectly paced. High notes, high kicks, very high standards. I can honestly say this is one of the best things I’ve seen in Oxford.”

What our audiences say ...
“We saw an excellent performance of Guys and Dolls by the astonishing Musical Youth Company of Oxford. These young people are incredibly talented and we were so lucky to be there. We sat next to a proud father of one of the performers, that was a plus.”
