Suffield Youth Theater depends on the generosity of the comunity to continue to thrive. Every donation, large or small makes a huge impact on us. Please consider donating to help improve SYT.
WHY SUFFIELD YOUTH THEATER IS UNIQUE
SYT stands out from other local theater organizations for two major reasons. First, we are completely student run. Every aspect of the company, aside from a six member Board of Advisers, is comprised of students between the age of 14 and 16. This presents great opportunities for us, both to learn hands on leadership, buisness techniques and many other great life skills and to have experiences most waint until college or later to enjoy...such as writing, casting, directing and performing a full length production to a full house! Being student run however, also poses many challenges. Annual expenses such as insurance, state filings and others limit how we are able to expand our company because the majority of production revenue pays for these expenses.
Secondly, SYT believes in free participation for everyone. That is why we do not charge a fee for cast and crew members to be in our shows or come to our workshops. We believe that theater is not only a valuable lesson in leadership but is also an insightful, eye opening experience that produces more mature and accepting young people. We do not want to limit this experience to only those who can afford performance fees and workshop tuitions, in addition to ticket fees. That is why our only source of revenue is tickets we sell at our productions and, of course, donations.
Suffield Youth Theater is a tax exempt organization so you can receive tax deductions from your donations! An receipt will be sent to you after you donate. Thank you!
