North Shore YMCA Theatre Company

The Y Theatre Company strives to enrich community by creating a place for children of all ages and backgrounds to join together in a love of stage. In an educational and nurturing environment, we inspire tomorrow's artists through performance, classroom education, and mentorship. The Y Theatre Company encourages children to embrace diversity, grow in individuality, and cultivate relationships throughout the North Shore.

Youth Theatre Productions

The Y Theatre Co. produces full scale musicals and plays for young actors ages 6 & up in Salem, Haverhill, and in conjunction with public schools in Swampscott and Manchester/Essex. Each production offers students an opportunity to join a supportive and talented theatre community where every role is given a chance to shine. Technical components including lights, sets, props, costumes and live musicians give a professional experience to new and experienced actors.
