Los Altos Youth Theatre
Los Altos Youth Theatre is an education driven, performance based program located in the Silicon Valley. We put on a minimum of three performances per season – two musicals and one play. Our unique venue offers students a chance to perfect their individual style of performance while pushing themselves to grow as artists.
Los Altos Youth Theatre is a program of the City of Los Altos’ Recreation and Community Services Department and Los Altos Stage Company. We offer many different opportunities for our young performers such as blended shows, unique performance venues, and compelling classes.
LAYT Winter Production
Come follow Milo, a lackadaisical young boy, as he decides to leave his humdrum life behind and venture through the tollbooth into a world of fighting kings, distracting dreams, and deceiving demons. With the help of Tock, a “watchdog”, Milo tries to help unite the divided world he has stumbled upon and bring Rhyme and Reason back to the domain.
LAYT Summer Production
The classic novel “Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott has been blessed with melody and transformed into an “astonishing” musical. Following the lives of Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy March as they start as young, wide-eyed children and ascend into adulthood the show contains all the books best moments and much more as the audience is able to see Jo’s stories comes to life! Featuring hit songs such as “Astonishing”, “Take A Chance On Me”, and “Some Thing’s Are Meant To Be”, you do not want to miss out on this show.
