The mission of The York Theatre Company is to be a birthplace for new literate, intimate musicals, and a place where under-appreciated musical gems from the past are rediscovered; to provide support for the creators of new musical theatre and be a showcase for new musical theatre talent of all kinds; to provide students with opportunities for hands-on theatre education; and to serve the community by presenting free or low-cost musical theatre performances to under-served audiences.
About York Theatre
Founded by the late Janet Hayes Walker in 1969, York has presented over 75 full-scale musical productions, including such classics as The Golden Apple, The Grass Harp, On the 20th Century, A Doll’s Life, Lost in the Stars, Carnival! and Merrily We Roll Along. Under the guidance of Producing Artistic Director James Morgan since 1997, the York has focused exclusively on musical theatre: new musicals in its Mainstage Series—most of them world, American or New York premieres by some of the field’s most esteemed creators, and talented emerging writers as well—and revivals in the Mufti Series. In 2006, a special Drama Desk Award was presented to the company for its “vital contributions to theatre by developing and producing new musicals."
