Donors like you make it all possible and help to underwrite more than one-third of the organizational costs of each outstanding theater season. Donors are a critical part of everything National Youth Theater accomplishes. Only a portion of our annual budget is covered by class/track fees, camps, ticket sales and production fees.

We are often asked what are the needs and expenses NYT incurs. Here is a short list: sets, props, sound, mics, lights, rental of theaters, class rental space, costumes, curriculum writing, royalties, licensing costs, insurance, web design, instructors and director stipends, and materials & staffing related to operational expenses.

National Youth Theater offers class prices that are below average in order to continue to make the program affordable for all students —  while maintaining the quality of teaching. NYT is working to make all tracks/classes, productions, and camps accessible for families throughout the area. Without your personal or business charitable support, this program could not be sustained at a reasonable cost to the students.

National Youth Theater believes the Lord will lead those to donate and provide all that is needed to fund the productions, classes, camps, and student scholarships to adequately fund National Youth Theater.  We believe this is an important investment into a student’s life; the things they learn here will translate throughout their whole lives, regardless of their future paths.

NYT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Christian ministry with the mission of engaging students in life changing experiences through the performing arts.  Please consider supporting us!
