About DYT

Delta Youth Theatre is proud to present a pre-professional youth theatre program. The program is designed for an ensemble of dedicated students who want to learn from professionals and to have fun in a focused and safe environment.  Students will rehearse and perform a musical that requires strong singer-actor skills.  They will be encouraged to discover their own unique talents and how these can be translated into a dynamic stage performance.
