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.
NYT Honored by the National Youth Arts Organization for Their Work During the 2018-2019 Season!
This year’s award winners were selected from nominations by a panel of more than 50 judges and reviewers. In addition to the youth who performed in schools and youth arts companies, anyone age 18 and under who performed at a show reviewed by a judge was also considered for the NYA awards, as well as the adults who participated in the youth productions backstage (directors, set designers, costume designers, etc.) and guest adult Performances in productions designed for youth. College artists are eligible for our University Arts (UniArts) Awards presented in conjunction with the National Youth Arts Awards.
