Tasty Treat for the whole family

VYT is celebrating its 21st season of providing
award-winning entertainment to the Valley. VYT
is in its second season utilizing a groundbreaking scholarship program, which
will allow all members of the cast and crew to earn $150-$300 for each
production. Money accrued will be held in an account and later used for the cast
or crew member to attend post-secondary school. When the performer turns 18
and enters college, the money will be distributed throughout their college
career. No other youth theatre in the
country offers such a program. Valley
