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 their Affiliate’s current production. Students not cast in the show are encouraged to participate in other ways. Depending on age and ability, students can participate on the backstage crew, technical team, or the costume and makeup committees.

Family Expectations 

Accepting a role in a CYT production is a significant commitment for the student and the family. Through this process, students and families learn the value of collaboration, responsibility, and hard work, while making friends and having fun. Parent commitment is a vital part of the CYT process. With fully committed students, parents, and the CYT Artistic Team working together, we will stage an amazing production.

Before your student auditions, review the production expectations. This is what you and your family are
committing to. Understanding this ahead of time will prepare you and your student to have the best possible CYT experience. More details on each of these elements can be found in the Show Manual which can be found on the link below.
 

Performer Commitment

  • 150% Effort and an A+ Attitude
  • Attendance at Auditions and Callbacks.
  • Attendance at all rehearsals, unless you are not called.
  • Attendance at all performances.
  • Memorizing all lines, songs and dances.
  • Being responsive to and respectful of our directors and staff.
  • Completing all responsibilities before leaving a rehearsal or performance.
Parents are the backbone of CYT! Without them, CYT would not be the family-oriented organization that it is and could not produce the high-quality community shows that it does.

At least one parent of each student cast in the production must serve on a CYT Production Team. Options include, but are not limited to: costumes, props, greenroom, backstage, sets, make-up, programs, ushers, concessions and so much more!
