Junior’s 8-11s: A World Of Stories

“LYT shows young people that the arts are for all not just those who can afford it. The commitment of the LYT staff in the young people’s lives is huge. My son has had so many opportunities to follow his dreams.”
– Parent of Technical Crew

“She’s been so different at home as well. I can’t believe teh change in her. Now, she controls her emotions so much more. It’s a pleasure to see the improvements.
– Parent of Performer

 “I feel much more confident. LYT made me feel like myself because by being a character you can express yourself because maybe that character is a little like you. It made me feel safe being at LYT and I didn’t care what anyone else thought of me.”
– Performer
