East Hartford Summer Youth Festival

​55 ​years of working with youth and adults in East Hartford and surrounding communities, giving them experience in Musical Theatre.

Dedicated to providing high quality productions for your enjoyment.



With it, a brand new year brings hope and possibility... and Valentine's Day! We are putting together a show to highlight these themes! 

Lend your talent to our virtual celebration of love and hope in whatever form you would like.  It could be a message of hope for the new year, love for yourself, for your family, for a partner, or maybe for a pet - we just want to celebrate!  If you are interested in participating, please email Valerie at valerie.nettleton@gmail.com by January 17th and let her know what you would like to contribute or that you need some assistance.  Some possible ideas are listed below but please feel free to come up with ideas of your own:

  • Singing 1/2 of a duet (we can match you up with someone to sing the other half or you could make arrangements yourself)

  • Doing a reading

  • Performing a dance

  • speaking from the heart

  • displaying a piece of art

  • something else you have in mind

  • Need help with an idea?  We can help with that too - just let us know!


We will be asking each participant to record their individual pieces and the talented D. Scott Graham will be editing the recordings together to produce a final video which will be shared, posted, and likely televised for all to enjoy.  More information on the 'how to' will be sent out to participants who sign up.


We look forward to hearing from you soon!
