To our valued families, friends and patrons of CYT Portland Vancouver

We wanted to let you know as soon as possible that we are working closely as a staff and board of directors to answer all of your inquiries regarding ticket refunds, upcoming classes, shows and camps due to the mandated cancelling of all Tarzan performances this week and recommendations from various officials. We will have additional information posted as soon as our board of directors meets over the next few days. Please stay tuned.
This situation is evolving rapidly. Be assured that we are all working hard to put a plan in place with an abundance of caution and our primary concern being the safety of our students, families and community. We appreciate your continued patience and support as we navigate this unprecedented turn of events.

Welcome to Christian Youth Theater Portland/Vancouver!

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.
