Millet family HalfPenny Youth Theatre seeks theatre fans

The Millet family has always loved theatre. Sandy Millet, a high school theatre teacher of 16 years and a founding member of Salem Community Theatre, has always encouraged her daughters to appreciate the arts, and is grateful that all of them love theatre as much as she does. From the time they were small, the family spent their free time going up and down the state seeing shows. They always dreamed of opening their own theatre when the time was right.

After the covid pandemic, the Millets saw how much the kids in their lives were craving connection with others and a way to show creativity. They decided the time was right and founded Halfpenny Youth Theatre, a non profit theatre company committed to bringing young people together in creative and fun ways to help them gain confidence, make social connections, and develop their talents in theatre, dance, and voice. The family-owned company located in Payson is in its second year, and has already produced You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown this year.

They are planning two more fun shows in June, and already have plans for the fall. When asked who should give theatre a try, their answer is an enthusiastic “Everyone!” If you or someone you love are looking to get involved with theatre, either as an audience member or a performer, check out their facebook page (Halfpenny Youth Theatre) or their website at for upcoming opportunities!
