Rhode Island Youth Theatre celebrates its 30th Anniversary at The Park Theatre!

Rhode Island Youth Theater (RIYT) (formerly Fantasy Works Youth Theatre) has expanded its role in the Rhode Island community, offering new opportunities for our students to CREATE, PERFORM, and EXPERIENCE exceptional theatre.

Our goal is to create a model of excellence in the development of new works, innovative programs, and educational initiatives. We plan to accomplish this through collaborations with centers of learning and distinguished artists, while continuing to provide apprenticeships and internships to teens planning careers in the arts.

We are an ensemble company. Respect, responsibility and collaboration are the values that guide us. Students are empowered as they enter the world of theatre: a place where their diverse interests, talents, and skills are valued; a place where each student becomes an integral part of an ensemble through the process of creating and presenting performance pieces.

Our shows that we are producing at The Park Theatre are:**
