* Every year, UYT takes its summer production on a tour around the community. We visit places such a Logan Center, Holy Cross Village, Hannah&Friends, and many other wonderful organizations and individuals that don’t have access to the theatre. The past two years, our tour has been a huge success and has given students an opportunity to impact and give back to their community at a young age! *

The Giver show description:

Jonas' world is perfect. Everything is under control and safe. There is no war or fear or pain. There are also no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community. But when Jonas turns 12, he is chosen for special training from The Giver—to receive and keep the memories of the community. The Giver is the only person who holds the memories of real pain and real joy. Now Jonas will learn the truth about life—and the hypocrisy of his utopian world. Through this astonishing and moving adaptation, discover what it means to grow up, to grow wise, and to take control of your own destiny. The Giver was commissioned by Oregon Children's Theatre and has played to sold-out audiences at such theatres as Oregon Children's Theatre, First Stage Milwaukee, The Coterie Theatre, and many more!

Matilda the Musical!


UYT is excited to be the FIRST theatre in the Michiana area to produce Matilda the Musical! Come join the UYT team for our final show of the 2018-2019 season!

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!

Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs, children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

AUDITION dates: September 4th and 5th (6:00-8:00 PM); Callbacks on September 6th (6:00-8:00 pm)
