Summer Sessions

Thank you for choosing Youth Theatre when planning your summer!

Important Summer Session Information

Youth Theatre has been serving children in our community since 1983. In those 30 plus years, we have produced hundreds of plays and thousands of children have attended a YTU class or camp. We always look forward to the joy that summer brings. There is a special magic when children make new friends, develop skills, and find self-confidence both on stage and off.

Even though our summer sessions will be virtual this summer, we are fully committed to providing you with the best we have to offer. We believe this is especially important work when children are struggling emotionally and are in need of a positive, community experience. Youth Theatre is a safe harbor for our students; a place where they can be themselves and, through theatre, learn empathy, responsibility, and resilience.

Our lead teaching artists have been teaching virtually since the start of the pandemic and we are confident that it will be a vibrant and enriching experience for your student. The feedback and engagement from our students in our spring classes have been extremely positive. 

We sincerely hope that you will give virtual programming a try, but we understand that it may not be right for your child. 

We are grateful for your investment in Youth Theatre today, so that we may continue to provide outstanding programming for your family this year and beyond. Thank you!
