Welcome to CYT!

Christian Youth Theater (CYT) is the largest after-school theater arts training program in the nation. Affiliates across the country offer classes in drama, music, dance, technical theater, and more! Each local program offers camps and classes for ages 5-18, and full-scale productions for ages 8-18.

Don't Forget Why This Matters!

CYT exists to serve the kids, helping them to grow, develop character and become everything God designed them to be. Each year the My CYT STORY CONTEST gives our students the change to tell the story of what CYT means to them.

Classes For Everyone

CYT Classes include drama, voice, dance, and a broad spectrum of other specialty theatrical workshops. There are three ten-week sessions a year (Fall, Winter, and Spring), and a showcase at the end of each session that allows students to show off what they have learned to family & friends.

All The World's A Stage

CYT Shows are Broadway-style musical theater productions, appropriate for the entire family. Students enrolled in classes have the opportunity to audition and perform (or work behind-the-scenes) in CYT shows. CYT shows are appropriate for the entire family and are an excellent way to introduce children to the arts.

Got Summer Plans?

CYT Theater Summer Camps are designed to create a hands-on theater experience. Campers will enjoy making new friends as they build performance skills and learn self-confidence and teamwork. There is no better place for kids to experience theater than in CYT’s positive and encouraging atmosphere - and every camper gets the opportunity to perform on stage!
There are many ways to be part of CYT beyond the stage! CYT programs consist of everything that is not a class, camp, or show. Some of the available programs include CYT@school, HYPE, Improvathon, and the yearly CYT EXPO.
