The creation of the Klaipėda Youth Theater was another step, taken by the Valentinas Masalskis troupe „P.S.” The main aim of this theater remains the same – a constant search of a theater which would be able to intrigue the viewer, with sometimes unexpected and original solutions in both form and content. This search combines not only traditional drama, but also the art of music, movement, rhythmic, and light. In short, Klaipėda Youth Theater seeks to remain an open theater. This aim is presented even in the title of the theater. “For us, youth is not an age group. It is vitality, zealousness, the never ending desire for personal development and development of the environment, which we live in” – the Klaipėda Youth Theater troupe stated.
