Young Playwrights' Theater inspires young
people to realize the power of their own voices.

Dedicated Donors

Here we highlight the generous people who help make our work possible, our donors. Read below to find out more about who they are and why they choose to give to YPT.

Alicia Dick
Dedicated Donor, May 2017

As we close out the 2016-2017 performance season, we are reminded how vital the support of our donors is to the continued success of Young Playwrights' Theater. We were delighted to chat with YPT Board member and donor Alicia Dick. Alicia talks about why she loves YPT, why she gives, and why she decided to become a YPT Builder.

Amelia Stanley
Dedicated Donor, April 2017

 YPT could not do what we do without the support of our many amazing donors. From volunteering their time to contributing financially to cheering on our students in the audience, we are lucky to have such a wonderful community of support. Periodically, we like to feature our donors in a series we call Dedicated Donors. Over the next two months, we will feature all of the donors who give to YPT on a recurring basis. This month we are featuring Amelia Stanley!
