*VYTALITY – Valley Youth Theatre Applauds Leadership Impacting Today’s Youth

Valley Youth Theatre is supported by a 50/50 split between earned and contributed revenue. Patrons who purchase show tickets and parents who register their children for classes or camps represent the earned revenue that pays for our overhead and operating costs. Our contributed revenue comes from individuals and businesses that provide us with sponsorships, grants, inkind donations and volunteers.

HERE’S WHAT OUR VYTAL SUPPORTERS HELP TO MAKE HAPPEN…
Fee-Free Productions are a cornerstone of our theatre. Our cast members do not pay fees to
participate. They don’t have to rent or purchase costumes and there are no requirements for them
to sell tickets. They also aren’t required to have any previous theatrical experience or formal
training. We just strive to recognize each child’s potential and to match their talent and skill level
with the needs of each role. That means, our open casting gives every child in the Valley an
opportunity to participate in our shows – regardless of their social or economic backgrounds.
Each year, an extremely diverse group of more than 500 young people audition for over 150
roles.

Sponsor-a-Seat allows disadvantaged children from dozens of local social service organizations
to attend a free VYT performance at the Herberger Theater Center and enjoy a complimentary
lunch with the cast and crew. Each year, more than 1,000 children enjoy a complimentary
Sponsor-a-Seat performance.

Literacy and the Arts gives students from Title 1 schools a page-to-stage experience by
effectively combining the power of in-school learning with the enchantment of experiencing live
theatre. Books related to the production and accompanying study guides prepare children for a
production that helps them learn. Each year, more than 3,700 Title 1 school students benefit
from this program.

VYT’s HopeKids program brings children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to a
free performance, immediately preceding opening night. Each year, we facilitate more than 650
complimentary seats to these appreciative families.

Military Night offers complimentary tickets for select performances to families of the armed
forces and first responders, allowing them to reinforce family bonds and create positive life-long
memories. Each year, more than 170 complimentary tickets are given to veterans and their
family members.

Field Trips provide a way for teachers to supplement under-funded school arts programs by
purchasing tickets at a greatly reduced price. For every show, our cast, crew and orchestra set
aside designated daytime performances to facilitate these teachers and their students. Each year,
more than 3,300 students are able to see a VYT show for our reduced field trip price.
