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

CYT Dallas Vision

Benefits of Giving

CYT relies on patron donations 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 are committed to providing a safe space for social-emotional wellness. We know that theater is a vehicle to provide students with an outlet to express themselves

Matching Gifts

Did you know that numerous companies provide matching gifts, effectively doubling or even tripling your donation? Moreover, some businesses extend their generosity by compensating for your volunteer efforts. To explore whether your contribution or volunteer time qualifies, please reach out to Ashley Anderson at for further details.
