Tacoma Youth Theatre is dedicated to creating high-quality theatre entirely produced by young artists. The company strives to build community by emphasizing core values of self-esteem, empathy, responsibility, collaboration, creativity, and adaptability. Tacoma Youth Theatre provides professional expectations, resources, and mentors that lead young people through the exploration of multiple theatrical disciplines. This process works best in a nurturing, respectful atmosphere where unique individuals, ages 5-18, can discover the impact, success, and joy of theatre for themselves. Tacoma Youth Theatre offers partial and full tuition scholarships to qualified young artists enrolled in audition-based programs.
About Tacoma Youth Theatre
Tacoma Youth Theatre is Tacoma’s only all-youth theatre company. This summer we will establish the company and offer four tuition-based educational experiences for area youth. Our ultimate goal is to establish non-profit (501c3) status before the end of 2012. Even this summer, we will offer financial scholarships to our programs as part of our commitment to never turn a child away based on their inability to pay. Our long-term goal is to create a fully-functioning, year-round theatre company - completely driven by youth. Young people will be acting, designing, constructing, painting, costuming and eventually even directing and writing.
