- MYT: A Non-Profit, Youth-Focused Community Theater
Posted by : Dave Palese 01 June 2015
Midcoast Youth Theater (MYT) is a non-profit arts organization founded in 2003. We provide equal opportunities for all children to perform in full length musicals, without regard for past experience or financial resources.
We produce 2 multi-generational shows for all ages in the spring and fall and 4 youth-only shows in the summer. The multi-generational shows give young people the opportunity to perform with family members and people of all ages. The youth-only shows give young people more focused opportunities to develop honed theatrical, dancing and singing skills as they practice team-work with peers. All productions are run by an experienced team of director, music director, choreographer, stage managers, producers and assistants. Young people have opportunities to work as creative team assistants and leaders, and qualified student musicians play in the pit during performances under the leadership of the music director, Courtney Babbidge.
