About CYT Shows

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 (and siblings) can participate on the backstage crew, technical team, or the costume and makeup committees.

Auditions

Students enrolled in CYT classes are invited to audition for their Affiliate’s current production. Auditions typically consist of a one-minute song performed for the Artistic Team, with the possibility to learn and perform a short dance routine. The audition process may also include a “callback” in which a student may be asked to read for a speaking role in the play. Auditions are a wonderful way for students to gain self-confidence and to show the best of their talents!

Parent Committees

Parents are the backbone of CYT! Without them, CYT would not be the family-oriented organization that it is, in additoin to producing high-quality shows! 

At least one parent of each student cast in the production is required to serve on a CYT Parent Committee. Options include, but are not limited to: costumes, refreshments, props, greenroom, backstage, public relations, sets, docents, technical, make-up, programs, and house management.
