PITTSBORO — Pittsboro Youth Theater held its first in-person theater rehearsals for each of the organization’s four spring plays on a recent Saturday. Social distancing was enforced but that did little to dampen the enthusiasm.

“It was invigorating to see all our kids’ smiling faces again,” said Tammy Matthews, the theater’s artistic director. “We all had a great time.”

PYT old-timers, teenagers with years of experience with the theater, jumped back into their dusty but well-remembered theater rehearsal exercises.

“Some of these kids have been in several online casts over the last year but have never actually rehearsed in person before,” said Craig Witter, PYT’s technical director. “Everybody was excited — parents too!”

PYT will be having Saturday rehearsals in-person outside the offices of Preston Development in Chatham Park while PYT’s own Sweet Bee Theater space in the Center for the Arts in downtown Pittsboro is sitting fallow.

“With COVID it’s safer to gather outdoors,” Witter said. “Hopefully we’ll be back in the theater with the windows open for camps this summer.”

PYT plans to perform all its spring plays to live audiences outside this May and June. For more information, call Witter at 919-949-7181 or go to www.PittsboroYouthTheater.com.
