Your Support Matters
It’s as simple as that. As a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, we count on the many individuals, corporations and foundations who contribute to Valley Youth Theatre each season. With ticket revenues comprising less than 50% of our budget, it is through the generosity of individual donors, corporate sponsorships and foundations that help to raise the curtain on award-winning theatre.
Your contribution enables VYT to keep ticket prices affordable for the entire community—from students to seniors, and everyone in between. Also, VYT is able to remain fee-free to the youth who attend our auditions and perform in our mainstage productions, ensuring equal access and opportunity to anyone with the desire to perform. It provides free and low-cost educational outreach programs for our schools. And it ensures we maintain the artistic excellence you have come to expect at Valley Youth Theatre.
There are many ways to support Valley Youth Theatre.
VYTal Affair is our annual gala, placing the spotlight not only on our talented young performers, but members of the community who have made a difference in the lives of children. Sponsor-A-Seat is an annual event which brings the magic of live theatre to social service agencies and the children they serve. We also have formed the Artistic Director’s Circle, an exclusive group of supporters who have decided to increase their level of support for VYT and receive exclusive and exciting rewards.
There is also our award-winning educational program, Literacy and the Arts, which was presented with the 2008 Governor’s Arts Award. Literacy and the Arts is an education outreach program in which we partner with the Phoenix Elementary and Roosevelt School Districts. The program utilizes the live theatre experience to increase time spent reading, comprehension of the story and exposure to the performing arts.
Through all of these programs, we are working hard to inspire the youth in our programs and productions to be the very best they can be! Your gift matters to them, and to us.
For more than 27 years, our mission has reached thousands in our community thanks in large part to our individual, corporate and foundation sponsors. Please consider supporting Valley Youth Theatre, YOU can play a part!
