Firebird Youth Theater is a non-profit theater co. based in NYC that is entirely run by teenage artists, striving to create professional-grade work with young people. We've produced four off-Broadway shows! FYT runs on donations from people like you!
Firebird returns to the stage with Romeo + Juliet, a gripping reimagining of the classic play, produced with a mixed-age cast. The show reaches back to the roots of the most renowned romantic tragedy of all time, in a rich exploration of age and generational dynamics, the teenage struggle for independence and affirmation, and the difficulty of communication across generations.

Firebird Youth Theater, an entirely teen-run nonprofit theater company, made their debut in 2013, and have gone on to produce four yearly off- and off-Off-Broadway productions, funded by people like you! Their last two productions, stage adaptations of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Treasure Island, both received multiple National Youth Arts awards, and their work has been covered by TDF Stages Magazine and Huffington Post.

FYT is a non-profit organization, run on fundraising programs and generous donations from people like you! With an off-Broadway theater venue and rehearsal space rental, alongside set construction and transportation, costumes, props, and tech support, Firebird needs you to help us take flight. We need as much help as we can get to make sure we can bring Romeo + Juliet to the public. So please make your donation today and spread the word so others can do the same!

Romeo + Juliet goes up the weekend of June 16th-18th, 2017
At the Hudson Guild Theatre in New York, NY.
441 W. 26 St. (between 9th and 10th Avenues) New York, NY 10001 

Please save the date, we hope to see you there!
Leo Lion
Artistic Director of Firebird Youth Theater
