Greetings Yazzy Patrons & Friends,

In compliance with Governor John Bel Edwards' mandate on March 16th, Theatre of the Performing Arts of Shreveport is immediately canceling all Yazzy Youth Celebrating Jazz programs until further notice. Hopefully, our 18th annual Yazzy Youth Celebrating Jazz Concert scheduled for Friday, April 24, 7:00 pm, at The Riverview Theatre will be postponed until the summer.

All Parents/Guardians will be notified by letter or email when rehearsals will resume. We thank you for your patience and cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact our office at 318-525-0740 or 318-621-8914 or by email at tpaarts318@aol.com.

Please continue to keep our city, state, and nation in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. In the meantime, stay healthy and sanitized!


Gloria C. Gipson,
