Elton John and Tim Rice’s


At the Herberger Theater Center

August 8 through 24, 2008  

Valley Youth Theatre opens its 20th anniversary season with AIDA, the epic tale of love, loyalty and betrayal featuring the exhilarating Tony® and Grammy® Award-winning score by Elton John and Tim Rice in their first collaboration since writing the music for the worldwide phenomenon The Lion King.
