See A Show! Be in a Show!

Check out one of our family Broadway classics coming to a stage near you! OR see yourself on stage! Students enrolled in classes (ages 8-18) are eligible to audition.

CYT shows are always appropriate for the entire family and are an excellent way to introduce children to the arts at a young age! In addition to producing a full-length Broadway-style musical on stage, our lobby is always bustling with the excitement of a carnival, from a wide selection of refreshments to show-themed souvenirs and enticing raffles! We offer special performances for FIELD TRIPS!
