Our Story

Students share in Phoenix Youth Theatre’s vision of a WOW experience.

The PYT Mission

Our mission is to provide young people with the skills and personal attention they need to grow artistically and individually while participating in and learning about all aspects of high-quality theater production.

The PYT Vision

Students share in Phoenix Youth Theatre’s vision of a WOW experience, are open to the unexpected, and are supportive, passionate and determined, building open and genuine relationships, embracing each other’s unique—even quirky—elements, to inspire others, and to be for each other.

Finding this theater has been the best thing that has happened to our family!
