Christian Youth Theater (CYT) is a theater arts training program for students ages 4-18. Since its founding in 1981, CYT has grown to be the largest youth theater program in the nation, with Affiliates across the country training thousands of students a year.
CYT curriculum is based on visual and performing arts content standards for Pre-K thru grade 12. There are two components to our program. One is introducing many of the theatre content standards, and the second is to apply those standards in a performance showcase for family and friends.
Research has shown that performing arts helps students gain confidence, build leadership skills and develop a sense of community. CYT wants to ensure that students everywhere have an opportunity to experience theater arts.
