                          About Ypsilanti Youth Theatre

Ypsilanti Youth Theatre (YYT) was formed to provide a quality theater experience for youth in the Ypsilanti area.  The YYT is open to all, even those who have no previous experience. Everyone who auditions is given a part. It is only essential that participants be interested in and enthusiastic about theater.

We believe children and the arts make a great combination; and that the arts cultivate knowledge and self-expression, bringing enrichment and enjoyment to people's lives. So we are providing a theater group for Ypsilanti-Area youth in a fun and meaningful participatory experience that encourages creativity, celebrates our community's heritage, and embraces its cultural diversity. 

YYT offers a safe space and a structure within which young people (ages 8-18) can create and participate in quality performance pieces and explore a variety of drama and theater techniques. Through drama, young people can learn to work cooperatively — with each child bringing his or her own uniqueness to the group.

As of February, 2016, YYT has the honor of being the Youth Theater Company in Residence at the Riverside Arts Center, 76 N. Huron Street, in downtown Ypsilanti.  We are delighted to be able to be a part of this wonderful community arts center, and are excited about the opportunities it will bring to our young actors.

Founded in 2005 by Leslie Cypert and O’Bryan Worley, the Ypsilanti Youth Theatre is a nonprofit organization. A Boa
rd of Directors oversees the activities of YYT and helps connect YYT to the community. While it is the board that manages the organization, it is the parents and the players who are the heart and soul of YYT!

The Ypsilanti Youth Theatre is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
