2020-2021 Mainstage Productions
As we continue to make decisions about next season, the safety of our audiences, cast members and creative team has been our guiding principle and highest priority. Due to the current state of the pandemic and the guidelines from the state and federal level, we are suspending our holiday production. We look forward to celebrating in a different way this season, so please stay tuned!
As for our February and May productions, we are hoping to move forward as planned; however, we will make final determinations in December.
These fully-staged, professional productions set PYT apart from other performing arts schools.

Students must be at least 6 years old and enrolled in full-year PYT classes in either the Dance or Drama Division in order to audition for roles.
