Drama School

For more than 60 years, Flint Youth Theatre has been dedicated to working with young people, not only to develop their love for theatre, but also their awareness of themselves and what they can do when they harness their creativity. For over a decade, FYT Drama School has exemplified this philosophy by providing one-on-one instruction while helping the class build towards a collective performance.

Studies show that the benefits of theatre go much further than being entertained. Students who participate in theatre gain confidence, learn important communication skills and understand the value of creative thinking. Our students are challenged to think, act and reflect during all aspects of their training, which leads to furthering their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

Each year, students across Mid-Michigan come to Drama School to learn, experience and develop a better understanding of the performing arts in a safe and welcoming environment. Whether you have taken classes before or are just starting on your journey with us, we look forward to seeing you take the stage.
