Why Support CYT?

Christian Youth Theater is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization (Tax ID #26-3038354).  Since revenue from ticket sales and class tuition is not enough to cover operating costs, every dollar you contribute ensures that CYT can continue to deliver high quality, affordable programs and achieve its goal to of developing character in children on and off the stage.
 According to “The Value and Quality of Arts Education: A Statement of Principles,” students who participate in the arts do better in school, stay in school longer, and win more academic awards. They are also three times more likely to go to college and become more confident, considerate, pro-social and pro-civic citizens! Your generous donation ensures that our students are given these benefits so that they can go on to build a stronger world for future generations.

Building a New Home for CYT Fredericksburg


Dear CYT Friends & Family...
We have something very exciting to share and we need your help to bloom where we've been planted.
 
By God's grace we have found a beautiful new space where we can house our Studio, Classrooms, Lessons, Offices, Green Room, Costume Shop, Working Warehouse, Props & Set Storage.
 
It needs work to be make it functional -- a place we can all be in one spot to
craft these amazing shows that build character in our kids and glorify God!
 
Our new landlord is a CYT Grandpa! He has blessed us as well! It's truly amazing
to watch God steer our ship into a new port.
 
So...how can you help? It's simple, memorable and impactful. 
We are going to build a LEGACY WALL of custom-etched bricks with your message of choice!
You buy a brick and choose your name, a Bible verse, your child's name, in memory of...anything you would like to literally be a part of the CYT "Legacy."
