Striving for artistic excellence in all production areas, HTYP honours the imaginations of audiences of all ages and endeavors to ignite the unlimited capacity of youth for empathy and an understanding of diverse human experience. HTYP encourages critical thinking through the development of educational materials and workshops that explore each production’s more complex and challenging themes.  We believe our dynamic productions and strong focus on working with playwrights to develop new plays for young audiences that are relevant and stimulating, will inspire a life long love of theatre and the shared experience of artistic expression.
