Experience with TYT has lead to professional careers in arts
To the Editor,
The Board of Directors for Tecumseh Youth Theatre (TYT) would like to thank each of our sponsors this season and every supporting member of this community.
Last year we approached the community letting you know that we were struggling. We needed support — financial, volunteer and publicity. The community did that and more! The outpouring of love and support we received through emails and social media was amazing!
We had testimonials of what TYT has meant to current and alumni participants. Several of our alumni that have taken theater, acting, vocals and choreography into a professional setting came back with great testimonials on how TYT helped prepare them for the life ahead and gave them a start in a field that they feel very passionate about.
We have refocused TYT to start building into a year-round teaching program. We want each student that comes through our doors to have not just a theatre experience but an education. Each student means the world to every production team member. They impact our lives as much as we do theirs. We want to be able to offer educational experiences, on stage and off, for each and every student. By the support that each of our sponsors and donators have given we have been able to reach our goals this year and give us, as an organization, a clearer vision of the focus and future for Tecumseh Youth Theatre. Without them, we would not be here today and we thank each and every one of you.
