You Connection is a faith-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation using professional theatre, media, and the creative arts to promote Christian values to audiences in the Dallas, Texas, area, and online, preaching the hardcore, uncompromising message of the Gospel through wildly inventive theatre shows, videos, and, more, reaching out especially to those who respond to the visual and performing arts!

YC THEATRE is the premier professional Christian theatre of Dallas/Ft. Worth, presenting original works that truly make an impact on all ages, combining the fun of a Broadway-style show with the life-changing message of the Gospel. Admission is always FREE (donations accepted).

YC MEDIA produces full-length films as well as hours of content on our free YC Web video site!

CONNECTING THE ARTS is a program in the works, a social, online, and community platform designed to see a powerful move of God in the sphere of arts and entertainment.

YC RESOURCES are a series of books for all ages- kids, teens, and adults- available on this site or at our Downtown Plano facility.

To use creativity to introduce, encourage, or reinforce a biblical worldview (a biblical perspective and understanding of the world), helping audiences not only know what they believe but why they believe it, and to present Bible-based solutions to current cultural issues, allowing audiences to evaluate or reexamine what they are seeing and hearing in today's confusing culture

All material originates from Founder/Director Matt Kramer, a culmination of spiritual, creative, and production expertise spanning over twenty years. His vision for You Connection, which began over a decade before YC’s inception in 2014, is the driving force of the whole thing- a vision for using the arts as a viable means of communicating the Gospel. His desire for strong theatrics that are comparable in style to Broadway or Hollywood, creative ideas that are highly innovative, and hardcore messages that proclaim the truth of Christ while defaming the unbiblical aspects of modern culture, makes You Connection a truly unique ministry.

We are the only Christian theatre in the Dallas metroplex (outside of churches or acting programs), making us a "church outside of church" in our community!

We appeal to those who respond to the performing and visual arts, who might go to see shows like Newsies, Annie, Cats, Matilda the Musical, or watch films like The Greatest Showman, La La Land, Mary Poppins, etc.

Our films and YC Web videos reach out to thousands across the Internet, all over the world, every single month!

Our target audience is ALL AGES! Young, old, and anyone in between can connect with You Connection's complex, multi-layered messages, designed to be understood by multiple generations.

Our unique brand of creativity, combined with hard-hitting, thought-provoking, and uncompromising messages, gives us a one-of-a-kind and instantly recognizable trademark!

CORE VALUES

We strive to reach out to both Christians and non-Christians; the powerful biblical content and strong evangelism is presented in the same tradition as a Broadway show or a Netflix film.
