(x)ymtp | Empowering children through theatre

What is (X)YMTP?

  • (X)YMTP is a youth theatre troupe made up of teen (ages 11-18) SYMTP alumnae with the goal of performing more difficult productions, being engaged in theatre outreach in the community, growing and giving back to the SYMTP community.
  • The “(X)” represents SYMTP coming out of the summer with (X) as a variable showing that it can happen at any time of year and anywhere in the community.
  • (X)YMTP is free to all members, but participants have to audition, commit to rigorous practice, performance, and educational outreach program.
  • The troupe is under the direction and mentorship of the regular Summer Youth Musical Theatre Program staff.

(X)YMTP so far:
Ambitious by design, (X)YMTP has already begun to spread and enrich the importance of theatre arts in the community of Globe-Miami.

  • Building the Program: (X)YMTP is a chance for our teens to give back to the program they have grown to love.
  • Developing the Future:  SYMTP succeeds because of three things: generous and caring sponsors, committed and enthusiastic children, and a dedicated and brilliant staff. Without our staff and their expertise, SYMTP would not exist. (X)YMTP is a way to mentor participants, give them ownership and prepare the next generation for the inevitable.
  • Sold-out Shows:  In 2017, (X)YMTP saw tremendous growth in its teen performers and drew sold-out audiences to each performance of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, including an encore weekend.
