In Spring 2019 Pittsboro Youth Theater (PYT) is celebrating our 7th year in operation! Having performed in every existing space that was marginally appropriate for live theater, PYT opened our own Sweet Bee Theater and Center For The Arts, Pittsboro in January 2017. Sweet Bee Theater is the only public theater in Chatham county!!! PYT is proud to provide professional level performance arts training and local entertainment to area residents.

     Description: "Dorothy Meets Alice: The Wizard of Wonderland"

This new play version of the delightful meeting of two of literature's most famous young ladies unfolds when a young man puts off a book report till the last minute, then suddenly finds himself in a strange place somewhere between Oz and Wonderland. It then becomes his responsibility to unscramble the stories and steer the familiar characters—the Cowardly Lion, the Mad Hatter, the Scarecrow and the White Rabbit, among others—to their ultimate destinations while avoiding the Wicked Witch and the Red Queen. This hilarious, adventuresome romp is filled with laughter and surprises at every turn. And a couple of lessons emerge along the way as well.

     Description: "The Hobbit"

Bilbo Baggins is a comfortably well-off hobbit with a love for rousing adventure stories. Real adventures, however, are definitely not his cup of tea. So when Gandalf the wizard knocks at Bilbo's door, bringing with him Thorin Oakenshield, 11 ragged looking dwarfs, and a contract for an adventure to recover the lost treasure of Lonely Mountain, Bilbo could not be less interested—at first. But Bilbo's love of a good story gets the better of him, and before he knows it, he is off on a perilous quest over mountain and under hill through caves and forest and slimy dark places.

     Description: "Little Women"

This full-length version of Little Women is loved by audiences, casts and directors everywhere. The play begins one memorable Christmas when Marmee leaves to visit her sick husband and Jo sells her beautiful hair to help finance the trip. It ends just a year later when the happy family is again preparing to celebrate not only Christmas but also the return of Mr. March from the war. In between these two events, we again live, laugh, love and cry with Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth as they go through the many trials and tribulations that have made this story a classic.
