Los Gatos Youth Theatre (LGYT) was founded in June of 2009, by Blossom Hill teacher, Brian Houg. The purpose of the organization is to give children of Los Gatos and the surrounding communities their own theater opportunity. LGYT serves children ages 6-18.
The first production was Willy Wonka, Jr, performed in August 2009. In the summer of 2010, LGYT produced two plays, Aristocrats, Kids for the younger ages, 7-10 years and Guys and Dolls, Jr, for older children (10-13).
In 2013 LGYT added theatre camps to the summer line up. The camps perform a production at the end of each session. All camps actors hone their skills in acting, dance and voice.
The summer of 2014 brought Xanadu and Once on This Island, Jr. The camps performed Willy Wonka Jr. and Little Mermaid Jr.
Los Gatos Youth Theatre is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization.
