Help our shining stars stay “COOL!”


I hope this letter finds you well and cooler than our theatre situation was. Our air conditioning system was so old, it could have starred in its own historical drama. We need your help to raise the $25k that it cost to replace it. You can donate here!

Imagine performing A Midsummer Night’s Dream while feeling like you’re in the middle of a tropical rainforest. It’s not fun, trust me. Actors have turned into a sweaty mess of Shakespearean soup, and audience members have been seen fanning themselves with playbills instead of applauding the talented SYT youth. It was a tragedy of comedic proportions!

Here’s the deal: Your donation will help us transform our theatre from a sauna back into a stage, and what you get in return:

  1. Cool Kids: Happy, sweat-free young performers who can focus on acting rather than overheating.
  2. Chill Vibes: A comfortable, enjoyable experience for our audience members. No more sticking to the seats!
  3. Energy Savings: A modern, energy-efficient system that helps us save on bills and spend more on what matters—our amazing shows.

Whether you can donate $20, $50, $100, or even the cost of a month’s worth of iced lattes, every bit helps. To donate, visit our donations page. We appreciate how cool your gifts are!

If you have any questions or want to talk more about how awesome we are, feel free to contact Shelly Boucher at 623.521.9324 or

Thank you for your time, your generosity, and for helping us keep our cool—literally.

Coolest regards,

Shelly Boucher, Board Member

P.S. Every dollar brings us one step closer to our goal. Thanks for being our hero!
