The Summer Youth Musical Theater Workshop has touched the lives of hundreds of youth in Broome and Tioga Counties since its inception in 1998. The three-week program for students ages 12 through 18 enriches their lives through participation in an artistic process of the highest integrity. Directed and produced by outstanding professionals with notable accomplishments in acting, directing, and music, the workshop provides opportunities for artistic growth, self-expression, education, and teamwork by exposing participants to all aspects of a musical theater production.
