Heights Youth Theatre exists to create quality live theater that entertains its audiences and educates, encourages and inspires its young artists to grow! Tax ID 31-1502817


Heights Youth Theatre (HYT) is a non-profit organization committed to providing quality children's theatre on the East Side of Cleveland. 


HYT has been in existence for over 60 years and serves close to 5,000 youth and families each season! Originally a program of the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Board of Education, HYT is now administered by an independent Board, an Executive Director and many hard working volunteers from the community.


For countless numbers of children, HYT is their first exposure to live theater. It has been a place where young people (1st through 12th grade), from inner ring suburbs of Greater Cleveland and beyond, enjoy a safe and nurturing environment and a cooperative learning experience as they work together to mount a production. The extraordinary artistic quality of HYT's productions and the sense of connection to a larger community are but a few of the compelling reasons children and adults choose to become involved with the theatre.
