Lace Up in Support of Young People's Theatre!

On October 20th, 2013, join Team Young People's Theatre (YPT) and race with us in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. Help us to ensure that Young People's Theatre can continue to produce and present high quality professional theatre and workshops for the purpose of having a lasting impact on the emotional, intellectual and social development of young people.

YOUNG PEOPLE'S THEATRE (YPT, formerly Lorraine Kimsa Theatre for Young People) is the largest Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) company in Canada. Over our 46-year history we have produced many of the most important works that now form the canon of plays for young audiences in this country. In addition to being a producer and presenter of theatre, LKTYP has also been home to a year-round Drama School for youth since 1969 and offers fully-integrated arts-based educational programming to the greater community.
