Mission Statement

Triboro Youth Theatre's (TYT) mission is to provide cultural enrichment for young people through the performing arts. Our participants, who range from four years old through seniors in high school, enjoy enormous growth through acting, musical training, speech, creative movement and dance. Students can also choose to participate in off-stage areas of theatrical production, including stage crew, set construction, costume design, publicity, internships, etc. Triboro Youth Theatre is a production-based group, and utilizes an effective "learn by doing" approach through collaboration with professional staff and artists.

Participants are treated in a professional manner and are held to high standards all while experiencing the joy and creative fulfillment that stimulates artistic excellence and personal growth.

Everyone is accepted into TYT's productions. Auditions are held to determine the roles they will play. Rehearsals run for 8 - 12 weeks and most students attend once or twice a week allowing for other activities and school work.

Founded in 1996, Triboro Youth Theatre has a highly committed, professional staff, a dedicated Board of Directors and a core group of volunteers who make TYT's productions creative, professional, safe and fun. Participants pay a membership fee per production and a costume rental fee when applicable. Scholarships are available and are based upon financial need. Please contact the theatre for paperwork regarding this policy.
