Six years ago four aspiring actors and singers performed in Valley Youth Theatre’s production of The Wiz. These four talents, Season 6 American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, Emma Stone from “Superbad,” Chelsea Staub from “Bratz: the Movie” and Broadway star Max Crumm are mainstream stars and some even household names. And this Sunday, May 31, the four of them are coming back home to perform together once again to benefit their coveted Valley Youth Theatre at Symphony Hall.
In addition to Sparks, Stone, Staub and Crumm, other VYT alum from the past 20 years will be on stage singing various Broadway songs from our most popular shows. All proceeds from this night will go to ensure that VYT can continue to provide outreach programs, such as Literacy & The Arts, Sponsor-A-Seat and our scholarship program, as well as inspire our young performers to be the best they can be for the next 20 years.
In addition to regular seating, VIP ticket packages are also available. They include seating in the first two rows and are priced at $200. Rows 3-5 sell for $175 and both packages include special access to a post-show reception meet and greet. Regular and VIP ticket packages can be purchased through Ticketmaster or by calling Valley Youth Theatre at 602.253.8188 x2. For sponsorship opportunities call 602.253.8188 x304. For more information, go to VYT.com. There are no services fees for tickets purchased, in person, at the Phoenix Convention Center.
