About CYT Classes- Where the fun begins!

Every session (Fall, Winter and Spring) CYT Lake Charles offers 10-week theater arts classes to children & youth ages 4 – 18. These two hour after-school classes are held once a week. On the final week of classes, students will display a portion of what they've learned by participating in a SHOWCASE for family and friends.

Enrolled students, ages 8 – 18, have the opportunity to audition for a CYT Broadway-style musical!

NOTE: You must be enrolled in a CYT class in order to be eligible to audition for a show.

It is wonderful that there is a local organization that includes children of all races and religions, fosters their self- confidence in a nurturing environment and even finds ways to involve those young people who may not be interested in appearing on stage, but can fulfill a vital role, and gain much needed self-esteem, by being involved behind the scenes.

A CYT Teacher’s mission is to train and instruct students in such a way as to promote the development of character, self-esteem, and confidence. CYT teachers are qualified and experienced in the area in which they teach. They have been trained in the CYT methods of instruction and agree with the CYT values and outcome goals.  All CYT teachers have been background checked and adhere to our CYT Mission and Values.

Parents, friends, and relatives are invited to attend CYT's Showcase performance on the last day / evening of classes, free of charge! Showcase is the grand finale of each session of classes, at which every class makes a 5-10 minute presentation of something they have learned and rehearsed during the session. Don't miss the action!
