Whether it’s because NBYT is becoming more widely known or because more families are in need, we have several requests for financial assistance for our summer program this year. NBYT’s summer musical (Mary Poppins this year) is our most demanding, one of our most fun, and also our most expensive program each season. Although we strive to keep the participation cost low, the fee is still out of reach for some families in the communities we serve.
Did you know that businesses, clubs, and organizations—or even individuals—can sponsor a child’s participation in NBYT programs? The cost for full participation in our summer musical production of Mary Poppins is $450, but a donation of any amount can be made to help pay participation costs for this program or other productions throughout the coming season.
If you personally know a child who would like to participate in Mary Poppins, any business, organization, or other donor is welcome to pay for that specific child’s participation. All children who enroll will be cast in the show, and roles are determined based on pre-program auditions to be scheduled in June.
In the past nine years, NBYT has become one of the leading children’s theaters in Connecticut. As reasons for returning to NBYT, parents cite the quality staff and programs, the low cost of participation, and the gains in confidence that their children achieve. And NBYT never turns a child away for inability to pay. Please contribute if you can, and together we’ll give more children the opportunity to become involved.
To sponsor a child’s participation in NBYT’s summer musical or other programs, please send a donation to P.O. Box 306, New Britain, CT 06050-0306. Donations may also be made online through PayPal (even if you don’t have a PayPal account). We would also be happy to personally pick up a check and thank you on behalf of NBYT. No Boundaries Youth Theater (legally still New Britain Youth Theater Inc.) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and all donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. To contact us with any questions, please call 860-515-8115.
