Current Events:

     Six years ago, my life changed forever. I started my very first theatre class with Christian Youth Theatre! My time in CYT brought love, laughter, and light that helped shape me into the person I am today. 
     Lots of ups and lots of downs finally brought me to Thomas Miller, another long-time CYT student. We didn't start dating until after our time in CYT and we never even did a show together! Thank God for mutual friends, a love of theatre and a passion for the Lord!
     I could go on and on about the life skills I learned through this organization like public speaking, a confidence in myself, a love of community service and so much more. I'm forever thankful.

Something For Everyone

CYT offers classes for students ages 4-18 throughout the school year. Classes include drama, voice, dance, and behind-the-scenes training in makeup, costumes, tech, and more. Classes are held for two hours once a week and run for ten consecutive weeks in Fall, Winter, and Spring sessions. Class sizes are small and offer supervision both inside and outside the classroom. Each session culminates in a high-energy showcase to demonstrate to family, friends, and fellow students the skills acquired.

All The World’s a Stage

CYT shows are always appropriate for the entire family and are an excellent way to introduce children to the arts at a young age!
 
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.

What Are Your Summer Plans?

During the summer, CYT Branches put on week-long musical theater day camps for students ages 4-18. Camps are designed to be a fun and energetic immersion into the world of musical theater. Camps are jam-packed with games, activities, and interactive workshops that build performance skills, self-confidence, and teamwork. Typical camps include team competitions; rotations through drama, dance, and music workshops; and a concluding showcase for family and friends. Some Branches host overnight camps for older students. Through praise, worship, prayer, and daily devotions, CYT teen camps are particularly focused on spiritual growth.
 
CYT Summer Camps are all about fun, friendships, and theatrics. Camps are great yearly tradition for your child!
