(X)YMTP’s Spring 2022 showcase is a collection of four unique one-act plays. “Baking Friends” and “Finding the One” have been written by two young minds from long-time SYMTP (Summer Youth Musical Theatre Program) participants, while “Bittersweet Lullaby” and “Book Lovers” comes from Theatre Now New York, an artist service organization dedicated to the development of new works.
(X)YMTP is a program under Monsoon Youth and SYMTP, where the X represents our values of Exploration and Experimentation. Local students and staff are committed to the craft of storytelling through theatre and are challenging themselves to devise and design by exercising their own voice and telling their own stories. (X)YMTP is very special to us because it is our very first entirely student-directed show with our very first student-written pieces. The plays are fun and moving and, moreover, speak to the universal experience of friendship, love and freedom.
