More Than Just a Show!

CYT's programs are about so much more than musical theater! We are dedicated to developing character in children and adults one stage at a time.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we are able to serve our community by providing quality, affordable educational programs, and productions. However, ticket sales and class tuition are not sufficient to cover the cost of delivering top-notch programming.

A gift to CYT is an investment in an established, family-oriented organization that helps provide young people a safe, wholesome environment and skills to make better life choices so that they become positive, contributing members of their community. CYT also allows young people to explore the arts in an atmosphere that nurtures their inner creativity while developing their character

Every time I step out onto that stage, I have the opportunity to use my God given talents and passion to portray a soul, a portion of another’s story.

Standing "O"

CYT  is looking to the leaders of today who truly believe that funds invested in youth are an investment in our future. This goes to the heart of the CYT  mission. Charitable support allows CYT to grow and enhance the quality of the training and productions. A gift to CYT Dallas-Fort Worth is an investment with an established, family-oriented organization that helps provide children a safe, wholesome environment, and provides skills to make better life choices and become positive contributing members of their community.

I cannot even begin to describe the impact that CYT has had on my life. There, I was welcomed with open arms, despite all of the flaws I thought made me so undesirable.

Alexandra Gandy, CYT Student

Benefits of Giving

CYT relies on the donations of patrons so we can provide quality theater education across the country. According to “The Value and Quality of Arts Education: A Statement of Principles”, students who participate in the arts do better in school, stay in school longer, and win more academic awards. They are also three times more likely to go to college and become more confident, considerate, pro-social and pro-civic citizens! Your generous donation ensures that our students are given these benefits so that they can go on to build a stronger world for future generations.


We invite you to become a member of the Standing "O" Society by making a tax-deductible donation. Only about 70% of our budget total comes from ticket sales and tuition and fees. CYT Dallas-Fort Worth makes a conscious effort to keep tuition and ticket prices low in order to make the program accessible for families throughout the DFW area. Your support is critical to continue to make the program affordable. 

CYT's Dream Theater Space

As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, CYT Dallas-Fort Worth is about more than just the shows! We also reach thousands of families each year through after-school training programs, summer camps and more. We are dedicated to providing affordable, wholesome family entertainment and developing character in children and adults “one stage at a time.” A facility of our own would only help us further this mission!
