Since 1999, the historic Sheridan Opera House has been home to the Sheridan Arts Foundation's Young People's Theater (SAFYPT), a diverse and flourishing center for young thespians that enrolls more than 250 children between the ages of 2 and 18 each year.
With an emphasis on child-centered learning that caters to each student's individual needs, our curriculum ensures an educational process that nurtures both cognitive and creative growth.
SAFYPT upholds the philosophy that dramatic learning experiences should be non-competitive, and we do not require our students to audition. Young people at varying levels of ability and experience are invited to embark upon extraordinary journeys of wonder, discovery and imaginative delight.
The Sheridan Arts Foundation has awarded more than $150,000 in scholarship awards to Telluride's youth since the program's inception. Additionally, we subsidize all tuition prices to keep them affordable for all families.
Meet our SAF Young People's Theater Artistic Director Leah Heidenreich
Moving into her fourth season at the helm of the SAF Young People's Theater, Leah Heidenreich is so grateful and elated to move forward with creating live theater with Telluride's incredible kids. YPT has a very exciting season planned that will ensure the safety and health of each child who participates in the program, while bringing performance art to the young community of Telluride.
Thank You To Our YPT Donors!
