Our sincerest thanks to English Heritage for supporting the performance of "Til The Boys Come Home" at Dover Castle and to the Dover Harbour Board for allowing us to be at the Dover Music Festival in the Cruise Terminal.  Additionally, Dover District Council, Dover Town Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund all helped to bring into being the play is written by local Dover boy, Dan Drysdale, a member of DYT and author of two other plays about local events.  Much of the content was drawn from historical records of Dover.  The show was a great success and well appreciated by those who came to see it.

Welcome to the Home Page for the Dover Youth Theatre (DYT).  This site is by way of an introduction not just to DYT and those we support but also to all those kind people who help us to help others.  We will try and make it interesting as possible and we'd welcome any advice and comment.
My standing plea remains, that if we can expand the site (now 6+ years old) then that is something I would like to do. Ideas please for links to other sites, DYT members' blogs, etc, details of our supporters.
