Far too often young musical actors are directed to simply hit their marks, sing well, and do it faster and funnier.  I have heard again and again people say, “It’s just a musical,” which suggests there’s no need to do any more than that. But what about creating characters who have real lives and are dealing with real situations and circumstances? When you choose to create the people singing you approach their songs entirely differently.  Because you know what your relationship is to what you’re singing about, thus you know what you think and feel about what you are singing about and to whom you’re singing. Songs in musicals are the characters’ form of communication, and that requires thought, and actual acting.

Fill Buddy’s Stocking for Giving Day!

Dear Theater Patrons,
It’s no secret that arts organizations have been hit hard this year and Lexington Youth Theatre is no exception.  Our hope is that we will be able to return to the stage in 2021.  In the meantime, Lexington Youth Theatre must meet our monthly expenses in order to survive and make it to the day when we can all return to our favorite theatre seats for the next Lexington Youth Theatre performance.
YOU CAN HELP !
Tuesday, December 1, 2020 is a global day of giving.  Giving Tuesday is a day to inspire people to collaborate in improving local organizations and to give back in impactful ways to the projects and causes they support.
We have chosen to fill Buddy’s Stocking for our Giving Tuesday fundraiser. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to Lexington Youth Theatre to help us guarantee that live theatre will continue to enrich the lives of our youth and community for many years to come.   No gift is too small.  We look forward to the day Lexington Youth Theatre will be back and better than ever!
Thank you for your support!

Show Update

To our LYT Family and supporters,

For the safety of our actors, guests, and patrons and to remain consistent with recommendations made by the Governor of North Carolina, Roy Cooper, Lexington Youth Theatre, has made the hard decision to postpone the Fall show. This decision is based on the best available science and the need to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We will be re-evaluating routinely as COVID-19 continues to unfold and will continue to reassess the situation.

The LYT Board is planning on hosting fall theatre workshops. We want to keep our actors learning new skills so they will be ready for the next audition. (More information to come.)

Thank you so much for your flexibility and understanding during these unprecedented times.

*Please hold on to Shrek Tickets. They will be honored at the next show.

As of now, Shrek has been moved to Spring 2021. 

Save the date: March 26th, 27th, and 28th.

Thank you,

LYT Board
