Valley Youth Theatre is excited to welcome Leigh Ann Dolan as our new Director of Development and Communications!

Leigh Ann is a multiple Emmy-winning television and film producer who has worked on commercials, station promotions and both scripted and non-scripted television before moving to television development at Original Film in Los Angeles. More recently, she was one of the producers on the E! late- night talk show, Busy Tonight. She has an extensive background in the non-profit arts world, having come to us from the Phoenix Film Foundation where she served as Managing Director for the past 10 years. “I love VYT for what it has done for the thousands of children that have stepped on its stages – including me! I am so proud to be a part of this Phoenix institution and I am excited to continue the magic.”
