Since 1998, the Helen Hayes Youth Theatre has been a place where young performers ages 5 – 22 can be themselves, and learn the craft of theater in a creative, safe, and supportive environment.

The Helen Hayes Youth Theatre offers the ultimate arts experience. Our team of theater professionals is dedicated to creating high-quality theatrical productions. More importantly, we are committed to giving each child the special attention they need to grow both artistically and personally. Although we take great pride in the excellent performances that are created here, it is the process that our students undergo; the learning, the community building, and the fun they have, that we take most pride in, and has made the Helen Hayes Youth Theatre one of the oldest and most prestigious institutions of theater education in America.

Young actors of all skill levels are welcome, from novices to seasoned performers. All you need is a little curiosity and a love for performing!
