Youth Theatre, Inc.

Website http://youtheatrebl.com
Description

Youth Theatre, Inc. (YT) is a nonprofit organization that has been established to promote a quality, pre-professional summer theatre experience for the youth of Bloomington, Indiana and surrounding communities.

YT provides a venue for local youth to showcase their musical and dramatic skills, and to challenge the cast to develop as individual performers as they experience the thrill of live theatre. YT believes that finding self-expression through theatre can be a tremendously positive experience for young actors who are developing into adults. For those students who aspire to careers in the entertainment business, YT aims to recreate the experience of working within a professional theatre company. Toward that end, our performances feature professional venues, sets, and costumes in addition to live musicians.

Year Established 2009
