Who We Are

Christian Youth Theater (CYT) is an after-school theater arts training program for students ages 6-18.

Since its foundation in 1981 in San Diego, California, CYT has grown to be the largest youth theater in the nation. There are branches across the country training thousands of students a year.

CYT is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization, which is funded primarily through its tuition, ticket sales and outside contributions.

Because CYT does not own facilities for classes or productions, the organization works through the local community, utilizing classrooms and stages, in churches, schools and local theaters. CYT is not affiliated with a church body, and people of all faiths are welcome.

CYT stands in the forefront in its commitment to the highest ethical, moral, technical and artistic standards of excellence. Instructors are professionals, qualified in teaching and/or performing, who must understand our mission statement, values, objectives and goals. All CYT staff strive to be excellent roll models.

How CYT Works

Every session (fall, winter and spring) CYT offers theater arts classes for children as an after-school activity. Each local branch conducts three ten-week sessions throughout the school year, teaching drama, voice, dance and a broad spectrum of specialty theatrical workshops as weekly two-hour classes. Enrolled students have the opportunity to work behind the scenes, or audition and perform on stage in a Broadway-style musical performed for the community.

Additional performance opportunities are available to CYT students who may participate in CYT Tour Groups performing musical reviews for community and civic functions. Internships, director training, teacher aiding and shadow aiding are other ways for older students to gain additional training and experience.

Vision Statement 2008:

CYTâ„¢ will be recognized as the best youth theater arts program in the nation.
