7/27/2020 Update

Dear San Diego CYT families,

It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that at this time, CYT San Diego will not be offering upcoming programming, until further notice. I believe, in the days to come, it is important to focus on exceeding the standards of protocols, training manuals, and procedures to help ensure that we have an environment that promotes safety for our CYT students. This will take time, many conversations, and a strong proactive plan to bring success for the future. 

This intermission will not be easy. This will be the last week of employment for the majority of the staff including all of the Chapter Coordinators, Costumes, Production, and Managing Director.  This community has meant so much to each and every one of them and they are grateful for the years they were able to serve you.

Moving forward, the Russells will no longer serve in leadership roles for CYT San Diego.  The remaining staff and I, wish to reopen in hopes of offering programming to our amazing students again one day. In the many months ahead, as we work as the crew behind the scenes, we welcome conversations that can help us build towards new solutions. If you would like to participate, please let us know by filling out this quick form and we will reach out to you in the weeks to come. We need and value your input.

When this intermission is over and the curtain rolls back, all will be different, all will be clear, and the time will be redeemed.

Thank you for being part of the CYT San Diego Family,
Robyn Rebold-Smith
Artistic Director, CYT San Diego
