Youth Theatre at the U

Youth Theatre at the U is dedicated to empowering youth to skillfully participate in the performing arts as a vehicle to explore their creativity, engage in their community, and think critically about the world. For over thirty years, YTU has been providing high quality out-of-school time theatre arts programs for young people along the Wasatch Front.

University of Utah Youth Theatre helps young people learn to communicate, collaborate, create and celebrate by experiencing, hands-on, the theatre arts. In the classroom, in rehearsal, and in performance, students learn valuable principles, techniques, and skills that help them grow as people and as artists. YTU develops and produces new and existing works for multi-generational audiences. Through theatre, our students celebrate the joy and magic of live performance, and of life itself.
