London Youth Theatre Education (LYTE)
The LYTE (London Youth Theatre Education) Program is a top quality professional program, with the goal of fostering a love of theatre in youth. At LYTE, youth ages 8-18 gain experience in acting, singing, and dancing in a positive inclusive environment. Through the LYTE program, children develop leadership and team building skills while gaining confidence and self-esteem.
Since 2016, LYTE has expanded its programs from a summer program with a single performance to five shows throughout the year and a summer program! We are now happy to offer a Junior Main Stage Musical Program, a Homeschool Theatre Program, and two Spring Programs in addition to our Senior Main Stage Musical. Check through this site to see the many programs LYTE has to offer.

LYTE's Subsidy Program
LYTE strives to provide a professional quality theatre program for youth. We also believe that every child should have access to a theatre education, regardless of family finances. Our subsidy program was designed to assist parents with registration fees by deferring a portion of these costs.
Subsidies are determined on a case by case basis. If you require a subsidy for one of our programs, please email Program Coordinator Ruth Noonan for information.
