Theatre of Youth: Promoting an Art

In 1972, Rosalind Cramer and Toni Smith Wilson founded Theatre of Youth. They were theatre instructors at Daemen College. Today, more than 30 years later, this theatre company continues to grow and gain experience, dedicating itself to the mission of introducing theatre in the lives of everyone, especially in the life of young people. Professional actors perform the plays of Theatre of Youth in full-scale productions in the main stages. The staff of Theatre of Youth is really professional and well trained; most of them have important degrees in the field of arts. In 2005, around 50,000 teachers, parents and young people attended the productions of Theatre of Youth.

Theatre of Youth provides a unique experience to all the people, especially to the young ones; the plays have a profound impact on children. Theatre of Youth (TOY) is a non-profit organization that relies on corporate, individual, government and foundation sources to support its mission of producing high quality art. TOY is important to the community and the lives of the children of Western New York.

Some of the plays on stage are: BFG: Big Friendly Giant, Junie B. Jones & a Little Monkey Business, the Legend of Sleepy Hollow, the Masque of Beauty and the Beast, and Number the Stars. All the plays take places at the Allendale Theatre, which is located at 203, Allen Street, Buffalo. This theatre was built in 1913. Visit New York and attend the plays of Theatre of Youth at the Allendale Theatre.
