Ypsilanti Youth Theatre
psilanti Youth Theatre (YYT) was formed to provide a quality theater experience for youth in the Ypsilanti area. The YYT is open to all, even those who have no previous experience. Everyone who auditions is given a part. It is only essential that participants be interested in and enthusiastic about theater. We believe children and the arts make a great combination; and that the arts cultivate knowledge and self-expression, bringing enrichment and enjoyment to people's lives. So we are providing a theater group for Ypsilanti-Area youth in a fun and meaningful participatory experience that encourages creativity, celebrates our community's heritage, and embraces its cultural diversity. YYT offers a safe space and a structure within which young people (ages 8-18) can create and participate in quality performance pieces and explore a variety of drama and theater techniques. Through drama, young people can learn to work cooperatively — with each child bringing his or her own uniqueness to the group.
