Since 1989, Valley Youth Theatre has been positively impacting young people’s lives through a wide variety of performing arts opportunities.

Valley Youth Theatre builds character from characters through their award-winning main stage productions and educational programming.

Among the notable talent who got their start in the Valley Youth Theatre spotlight are award-winning movie actress and former Paradise Valley resident Emma Stone, “American Idol” winner and Grammy nominated recording artist Jordin Sparks, star of ABC Family’s hit TV series “Baby Daddy,” Chelsea Kane, star of Netflix sensation “Orange is the New Black” Kimiko Glenn, as well as others who have gone on to perform on Broadway.

On Aug. 20, VYT will hold their annual fundraising gala, the VYTal Affair! The night will support Valley Youth Theatre’s mission to inspire youth in the community and support another season of professional quality programming.
