About Us

N.J.Y.A., or New Jersey Youth Actors is a theatrical troupe based in Basking Ridge New Jersey. Created in 2017 it is a unique theatrical organization which provides the opportunity for local youth to create theatre. We, that local youth who have an immense appreciation and respect for the performing art, create shows directed, produced, choreographed, managed, and performed by youth. In other words, it is a professional style theatre group that is absolutely fully youth created. NJYA's shows have performed to a 984 seat sold out house at the Nash Theater at Raritan Valley Community College and have received attention from organizations like Stage Magazine and Theatre Critic, Peter Filichia. We hope to see you at our next production!


Art, in itself, is an attempt to bring order out of chaos.
