The Kemptville Youth Musical Theatre Company (KYMTC) is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization in Canada that provides children and youth an opportunity to be a part of a musical theatrical production. Founded by Barb Lacelle in 2002 in Kemptville, Ontario, the company has been staging youth musical theatre productions for 17 years.

HOW IT STARTED

Barb had a passion for musical theatre and wanted to give her daughter, and other youth from the Kemptville area, the chance to be a part of a musical production. She chose Oklahoma! as the first production. Oklahoma! was staged in 2003 and was a huge success – selling out 3 of the 4 shows, receiving very positive feedback, and proving that the company could thrive in Kemptville.

KYMTC’s next show, Oliver, was staged in the spring of 2004 with a cast of 38, including a “double casting” which involved having 2 sets of leads. The show was well received and very successful – with 3 of the 6 shows selling out.

KYMTC’s cast of Oliver – 2004Due to the popularity and success of the shows, in 2004, KYMTC decided to stage 2 shows a year: one in the spring with a younger cast and one in the fall with “older” youth. From 2004-2011, KYMTC staged 2 shows a year. In 2011, KYMTC returned to an annual spring production. As of August 2019, the company has staged 25 shows. Over the years, KYMTC has continued to grow and improve. Along the way, the company has earned a reputation for providing a professional, supportive experience to youth participants and for staging high quality, entertaining productions of both classic musical theatre and contemporary Broadway shows.

After witnessing tremendous success, KYMTC decided to use Yapsody to make it easier to customers from in and outside the town (most notably customers living in the city of Ottawa) to buy tickets.
