The Fort Wayne Youtheatre has been around since 1934, making it the third oldest children's theater in the nation.

In 2012, Executive Director Leslie Hormann broadened the group's horizons, adding collaborations with various local arts organizations to the Youtheatre's repertoire.

This month, along with the University of St Francis, they’re bringing their own interpretation of "Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka” to the Fort Wayne stage.
