Valley Youth Theatre Announces

Exciting 22nd Season Line-up! 

2010-2011 Season full of family fun, great music and literary adventures!

PHOENIX, AZ,  VYT’s Producing Artistic Director, Bobb Cooper has announced the lineup for the upcoming 2010-2011 Season.

First up and running from August 13th through August 29th, 2010, at the Valley Youth Theatre, is the show filled with lightning – greased lightnin! Grease is the word . . . and a throwback to the golden age of rock ‘n’ roll, when fast cars and grease in your hair were the most important things in the life of a teenager.  Enjoy show-stopping songs like “Summer Nights”, “Beauty School Dropout”, and “We Go Together” in the intimate setting of the Valley Youth Theatre!

Join the fun from October 1st through October 17th, 2010, for a celebration of all that is pink! Based on the book “Pinkalicious” by Elizabeth and Victoria Kann, Pinkalicious, the Musical is about a little girl whose love for all things pink – especially pink cupcakes – gets out of control when she turns pink herself! But when her hue goes too far, only Pinkalicious can figure out a way to get out of this predicament. This fun, adorable musical celebrates all things pink while showing that being yourself is best of all.

December’s show, running December 3rd through 23rd, 2010, is A Winnie the Pooh Christmas Tail, a family holiday favorite that has become a Valley tradition, now in its 15th year. Pooh, Piglet and the whole gang from the Hundred-Acre Wood help Eeyore learn about friendship and the spirit of giving!

Experience the enchantment February 4th through February 20th, 2011, as we follow Alice down the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland!  Regarded as one of the greatest children’s books ever written, Alice’s madcap adventures in Lewis Carroll’s whimsical story will delight and engage children and adults as she chases the White Rabbit, races the Dodo Bird, and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game! With dozens of wonderfully wacky characters, this is one exciting journey you don’t want to miss!

April 1st through April 17th, 2011 finds Alexander having a bad day. A terrible day. A horrible day. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is a musical adaptation of Judith Viorst’s tale of one of America’s feistiest characters.  When Alexander’s already trying day goes from bad to worse (lima beans for dinner! Ick!) it’s enough to make anyone want to move to Australia. Alexander's struggle with life's daily dramas will not only entertain but educate young audiences as they identify with Alexander and the obstacles he encounters, encouraging them to share their feelings and to realize that bad days happen—even in Australia.

The 2010-2011 Season ends with a triumphant return to the newly renovated Herberger Theater Center, June 10th through June 26th, 2011.  Annie, the charmingly upbeat sensation, has delighted audiences young and old with its sunny disposition for generations, featuring such songs as “Hard Knock Life” and “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile”. Don’t miss your chance to experience the magic as Annie and Daddy Warbucks discover that the Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow!

Auditions for the second show, Pinkalicious, will take place on Monday, August 2nd and Tuesday, August 3rd at 3:30 p.m., at Valley Youth Theatre.  Tickets go on sale to the public for Grease on June 21st, 2010, and for Pinkalicious, on August 9th, 2010.
