Northglenn Youth Theatre

The Northglenn Youth Theatre (NYT) has been providing youth the opportunity to perform in professional live theatrical shows since 1994.  Each year, NYT mounts two large productions performed at the DL Parsons Theatre. NYT has received numerous local and national awards, and has had over 1000 participants!

The mission of NYT is to strive to provide youth in our community the opportunity to explore the world of theatrical performance through professional instruction and hands-on experience, all the while encouraging children to expand their talents and cultivate a life-long love for the arts. NYT is also committed to providing family-friendly staged entertainment for our community.

NYT receives support from the Northglenn Arts and Humanities Foundation, SCFD, the city of Northglenn and private sponsorships.
