Act 1...How We Started...

United Youth Theatre was founded in 2016 by Drake Shrader and Clare Costello. After meeting in the winter of 2015, Drake and Clare quickly became friends through their mutual love and passion for children's performing arts. Together, they worked on numerous youth theatre productions and programs and went on to teach and run summer youth theatre programs for local community theatres. After noticing the lack of youth performing arts program options in our community and in ourarea schools, they formed United Youth Theatre - a non profit community theatre program exclusively for youth ages kindergarten to high school.
