West Jordan Youth Theatre is a non profit community youth theatre, run by volunteers in the West Jordan Community who are committed to bringing quality productions to the area. WJYT performs two musicals a year, keeping us apart from other youth theaters who often perform Jr shows – we only do full length runs so that the audience doesn’t miss out on important elements of a story. We strive to give the youth a more realistic experience and cast parts based on talent vocally, stage presence, character, or dance, depending on the needs of the show. For these reasons we cannot always cast every child who auditions. While this is always difficult, we encourage your child to continue to work and improve and return time after time.
For each child cast within a show, there is a nonrefundable $50.00 Participation Fee which includes the cost of a t-shirt. Parents can also opt to pay a $100 volunteer fee within a production, or perform 10 hours of volunteer service helping with various aspects of production.
Upcoming Improv classes will have a reasonable fee. Stay tuned for more details.
WJYT also typically offers a 3-5 day long summer workshop, depending on venue availability and production support. Costs are approx. $150 for the week but can vary.
