Their focus is on building a child’s self-esteem while teaching acting and singing skills.
For each of their sessions, Ultra Violet Production does a community service project in conjunction with their productions. Past projects have included food drives, visits with seniors in assisted living facilities, baking cookies for the elderly and much more.

Bethel Youth Theatre Troupe Winter Session to Present Willy Wonka, The Musical
Ultra Violet Productions, a Bethel based youth theatre troupe, will present Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka, the Musical for their winter session. The theatre troupe has been performing since January of 2010 throughout the Greater Danbury Area and incorporates community service and giving with all of their shows.
At the last show they presented at the Edmond Town Hall, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, students and their families collected a large amount of non-perishable food items to help stock the Brookfield Food Pantry. Last summer they presented a free performance of Snow White at the Brookfield Senior Home, The Cascades. Parents baked cookies and after the show the children visited with the seniors, signing autographs on their programs and socializing over dessert. From now through March they will be holding a sock, hat and glove drive to benefit the Dorothy Day Hospitality House to help Bethel and Danbury’s homeless population.
Students from Bethel, Newtown, Brookfield, Danbury, New Fairfield, Easton and Redding enjoy learning basic acting and performance skills while having fun in a non-competitive, nurturing environment that focuses on building a child’s self-esteem and confidence. Theater games, team-building games, improvisation and other activities encourage a child to feel comfortable in their own skin and gain the self-confidence they will need throughout their lives.
Ultra Violet Productions’ next session begins on Saturday January 12th and runs for 10 weeks through Saturday March 16th. Ages 5-18 are welcome to sign up. Classes are $150 per student per session plus a $25 annual registration fee. A 10% sibling discount is given to families. Classes are held at Dance Dimensions, 14 Del Mar Dr., Brookfield, on Saturdays from 10am-11am. The final production is on Saturday March 23rd at 7:00 p.m. at the Black Box Theatre (Dance Etc.), Mount Pleasant Road in Newtown.
