Firebird is a national-award-winning theater company producing youth-led art in the heart of New York City
In the Spring of 2013, Firebird Youth Theater made their debut as the first independent youth-lead theater company in our community, with their first off-Broadway production: Down the Chocolate River and Beyond, based on a beloved chocolate fairy tale by Roald Dahl. The show was adored by audiences of all ages, and sold out a five-show run.

- Expresso (2014)
- Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (2015)
- Treasure Island (2016)

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Treasure Island, and Romeo + Juliet all received numerous awards and nominations from National Youth Arts, and were reported on by Huffington Post and TDF Magazine.
