CYT utilizes local churches and schools for classes and productions. Although CYT may conduct classes in a church, it does not maintain a specific church affiliation. However, those involved in CYT at the staff and teacher level must understand CYT's Statement of Beliefs and reflect its Values and Objectives in their work.


Since it's founding in 1981 in San Diego, California, CYT has grown to be the largest Youth Theater in the nation. There are many branches across the country providing training to thousands of students every year.

Program Information:

CYT is a non-profit 501(c)(3) after-school theater arts education program for kids ages 6-18. Three sessions of theater arts classes are conducted each year, beginning in the fall. Each session consists of a ten-week period in which students take classes two hours per week as an after-school activity, covering such topics as Voice, Dance, Drama, Makeup, Set Building, Comedy, and Improv. Each class performs a “showcase” at the end of the session to show family and friends all that they have accomplished. Enrollment in our classes also provides students, ages 8-18, the opportunity to audition for the current production being produced for that particular session. Those students too young or those not cast are encouraged to participate in the production by, for example, being part of the backstage crew, helping to usher, etc. There are many ways to plug into a production. Parents of each student cast are required to serve on one of several production committees. Parents are asked to sign the audition form indicating their intent to commit themselves, as well as their children, to making the production a success. CYT is a family-oriented organization dedicated to providing entertaining activities centered around the family. Without the support of each parent, it could not offer the high quality productions it does.
