About CYT Shows

CYT shows are appropriate for the entire family and are an excellent way to introduce children to the arts! CYT produces one Broadway-style musical each session. Enrollment in CYT classes provides students (ages 8-18) the opportunity to audition for a current production. Students not cast in the show are encouraged to participate in other ways. Depending on age and ability, students (and siblings) can participate on the backstage crew, technical team, or the costume and makeup committees.

Our shows are a unique and exciting endeavor. We work together to create a professional production in just eight weeks. The show and rehearsal process are vital tools in our mission to develop character through training in the arts. Not only will your student learn to perform, but they will also learn who they are and their value as a member of the cast.

CYT Productions are fast-paced. We do an enormous amount in just a few weeks. There are loads of
details to manage, places to be, and responsibilities that all of us carry so that your student’s experience can be the best it can be. This manual has been designed to give you a clear picture of what to expect, what you and your student need to do and when, and how we all can work together for the best show possible.


Students enrolled in CYT classes are invited to audition for CYT's current production. Auditions typically consist of a one-minute song and a short memorized monologue performed for the Artistic Team. The audition process may also include a “callback” in which a student may be asked to read or sing for a specific character.  Auditions are an excellent way for students to gain self-confidence and show the best of their talents!

Parent Committees

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
Psalm 133:1

CYT puts a high value on supporting the family unit through the direct involvement of each family member’s talents, interests and abilities.Parents are the backbone of CYT! Without them, CYT would not be the family-oriented organization that it is, in addition to producing high-quality shows! 

At least one parent of each student cast in the production is required to serve on a CYT Parent Committee. Options include, but are not limited to: costumes, refreshments, props, greenroom, backstage, public relations, sets, docents, technical, make-up, programs, and house management.
