DIRECTORS

Angela, Sarah, & Cindy have collaborated since 2010 on St. John’s Lutheran School's annual musicals.  They are passionate about sharing the benefits of educational theatre to kids throughout the Napa Valley community, so they officially began NYT in 2016 (their annual summer musicals began in 2009).  They are proud to be on the path to becoming a Nonprofit organization so they can offer even more educational performance experiences to the youth of Napa Valley.  NYT is excited to collaborate with the Vintage High Drama Department!  We will be using Vintage High School's Little Theater for our performances.
