Buena Park Youth Theatre
The Buena Park Youth Theatre was started by Ruth Walp, at the time an elementary school teacher, as a result of the budgetary cutbacks in Fine Arts education in our public schools. The Youth Theatre has been producing fully staged Broadway musicals since 1980. Over the years over 3100 young people between the ages of 8 to 18 have participated.
