Enrollment in CYT classes provides students ages 8-18 the opportunity to audition for the current production. CYT Chapters produce one Broadway-style musical each session (Fall, Winter, and Spring). Students who want to be part of the show without performing can participate on the backstage crew, technical team, or as an usher.
CYT shows are always appropriate for the entire family and are an excellent way to introduce children to the arts at a young age.

Students enrolled in CYT classes are invited to audition for our mainstage production. Auditions typically consist of a one­ minute song performed for the Artistic Team, with the possibility to learn and perform a short dance routine. The audition process may also include a “callback” in which a student may be asked to read for a speaking role in the play. Auditions are a wonderful way for students to gain self­ confidence and to show the best of their talents!

CCT, Christian Community Theater, is open to ages 8-adult. Auditions are open, which means you do not have to be enrolled in a class to audition. 

Parent Teams

Parents are the backbone of CYT! Without them, CYT would not be the family ­oriented organization that it is and could not produce the high­ quality community shows that it does.

At least one adult of each student cast in the production must serve on a CYT Parent Team. Options include, but are not limited to: costumes, refreshments, props, greenroom, backstage, public relations, sets, docents, technical, make­up, programs, and house management.
