Hello Everybody --
At some point near the end of 2020, I started to say that 2021 would be big for PMT YAS! When I started saying it, I wasn’t completely sure what it meant, but I knew that it was important that I kept saying it, as a kind of mantra for what 2021 could be for us. And after a year like 2020, we needed it. Our students, our parents, our teaching artists, all of us -- we needed something big to happen in 2021.
After several months of searching and negotiating and planning, Shannon and I are thrilled to announce that we are officially moving into our own 3500 square foot, permanent theater space in Friendswood, designed and utilized exculsively for PMT YAS! And I think that is pretty big!
This big news is just the beginning, though. 2021 and beyond will continue to be big for PMT YAS! I believe this permanent space, called PMT YAS! Studio, is the first step in a series of steps that solidifies PMT YAS!’s place in the Houston Bay Area. This space will allow us to build more relationships with families in our community and to have a more significant impact in the lives of students through musical theater. At PMT YAS!, we say that theater is about 3 things: it’s about meeting new friends, doing what you love, and making lasting memories. And that’s exactly what we will do in our new space.
Shannon and I are not in the business of asking people for money. But this situation is unique. That’s why I am reaching out. We are looking for 50 people to join what we are calling The Founding Fifty, a group of 50 people who can make $1000 contributions to the build-out of PMT YAS! Studio and to the future of the Houston Theater Community. Are you able to become a member of The Founding Fifty today?
More information about The Founding Fifty can be found below, along with a few more details about PMT YAS! Studio. Please reach out to me or Shannon with any questions about this program. We thank you in advance for your consideration.

WHAT IS THE FOUNDING FIFTY?
