Welcome to our Summer Youth Theatre Virtual Summer Announcement!

We are excited to offer some amazing opportunities, even if they look a little different. And, if and when possible, we are dreaming about adding in-person elements such as street theatre, outdoor parades, and other fun performance surprises!

A new digital enrollment catalog will be released May 11

Our summer season will officially begin June 1.

What will this new summer look like?

Our Novice, Junior, and Senior productions look a little different. You’ll find only 1 section for each age group in our new variety show style.

Novice: 4th-6th Grade – June 1-12

Junior: 6th-8th Grade – June 8-26

Senior: 8th-12th Grade – July 6-24

Not only will you get to learn and perform songs, scenes, and choreography from the past 5 years of SYT shows, you’ll also get to explore the shows we had planned for this summer.

But wait! The best part is we are still going to do those full productions next summer! So, this is the perfect chance for you to revisit well-loved SYT favorites and deep dive into next year’s season.
