As NEYT enters its 20th year of operation, there are many new ways to join our vibrant team. We are excited to welcome new contributors.
Here at NEYT, we partner with students in all aspects of creating dramatic works. Mentorship, collaboration, and community building are at the heart of everything we do. We are the proud owner of a 12,000 sq. ft. building on Flat Street in downtown Brattleboro equipped with a 140-seat theater, lighting booth, four classrooms, green room, costume and set shops, lobby, and box office. We offer theater training for students ages 6-19 through productions, classes and apprenticeships – in an atmosphere of collaboration and support.

NEYT CORE VALUES
NEYT fosters the growth of young people through the practice of theatre arts in a welcoming, youth-centered community.
We believe in the creative force of youth as artists, learners, and community members. At NEYT, we help young people thrive in a community where they are trusted collaborators. Experienced mentors empower young people to meet the challenges theatre work puts before us. We believe the difficulties and joys that emerge from this complex collaboration facilitate resilience and independence. NEYT is for youth and by youth.
At NEYT, everyone is welcome. We work to foster a culture of belonging and mutual respect through the practice of honesty, patience, and empathy. We welcome people of diverse backgrounds and abilities - and value the perspectives of all our partners. We are dedicated to having a physical space that is accessible to all and strive to offer programs that meet a wide variety of interest and need.
HIGH-QUALITY PRACTICE IN THEATRE ARTS
NEYT offers young people the opportunity to engage in an environment where we strive for artistic excellence. We balance the demands of both process and product. Our young people acquire tangible skills in the broad range of theatre arts. We recruit and retain practicing artists, educators, and staff to support students in creating brave, exemplary theatre experiences.
NEYT is a place where youth experience and express the joy of creativity with others. We intentionally use play as a creative catalyst. It is an integral part of making art and growing community. Playfulness allows us to explore, discover, respond… and opens the door to creative force.
