Theatre Beyond the Stage
TYT Theatre is the production company for Toronto Youth Theatre. Where Toronto Youth Theatre exists as a platform for education and training for Toronto youth in the arts; TYT Theatre exists to explore new ways of bringing theatre to audiences regardless of age or geographic location. We are an expert team of creators that cultivate curiosity and promote community interest in the arts. Whether it's producing professional theatre shows, converting found spaces into new venues or building immersive experiences for anyone to enjoy - TYT Theatre is here to push boundaries and grow beyond traditional forms of entertainment.
“We do on stage things that are supposed to happen off. Which is a kind of integrity, if you look on every exit as being an entrance somewhere else.”
― Tom Stoppard, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
With new productions being developed monthly, TYT Theatre's catalogue of original work is produced alongside its well-known and pre-produced products. We strive to deliver excellence, integrity and excitement in all of our shows.
