The Park Avenue Youth Theater was established in 2013 by Liz Sweeney, the Director of Programs for Children & Families for PAUMC. At PAYT, students work with professional directors to develop their creative ideas and perspectives of the world into an original piece of theater. Every session is a combination of theater and improvisation games, ensemble building, and collaborative theater-making. We welcome all ages and all levels of experience! See below for the current program offerings from PAYT.
