2019 TYT Committee
TYT 2019 Festival will be at Chulabhorn School Pathumthani on February 15-17, 2019.
Our theme is “Finding Neverland: Never Growing Up.” It’s all about imagination and being a kid. Students will be put into 4 groups when they come “Fairies, Pirates, Mermaids, and Lost Boys maybe Lost Kids to lose boys? .” so if they want to base their play around the story of Peter Pan they can or we can leave it general.
