Can you believe the Valley Youth Theatre (VYT) is about to finish out its 21st season? That’s an important community statement. The final production of the season will be Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory… a tasty treat for the whole family. More on that later in this post.
Did you know VYT offers a scholarship program? VYT is in its second season utilizing a groundbreaking scholarship program, which will allow all members of the cast and crew to earn $150-$300 per production. The money is held and later distributed when the performer turns 18 and enters college. No other youth theater in the country offers such a program. Valley Youth Theatre (VYT) was honored by the Arts & Business Council of Greater Phoenix, as the 2008 Arts Organization of the Year.
