Mailing List

Your name will be added to our patron list when you book tickets, make a donation or register for any classes. This enables you to receive regular communications from TYT. With your consent, you may receive information from us, from our sponsors or other like-minded arts organizations from time to time, that we believe you may find of interest.

We try to contact all our ticket buyers at least once every year to obtain feedback, update information and offer the opportunity to become more closely associated with the TYT.

Sponsorship plays a vital role in funding our productions and helps to keep costs down. TYT may sometimes offer our patrons special promotions on behalf of our sponsors. Sometimes, as a service to our patrons, we may also distribute information regarding related cultural organizations.

Where

Only authorized personnel have access to this information. If ever we share your information with an outside organization (such as the mailing house that sends out our season handbook), we have a contract binding them to the same strict privacy controls that we use ourselves.

Information that you provide at this website during the secure connection is encrypted for security and transferred with no risk of being intercepted. We also assess new technology for protecting customer information on an ongoing basis.
