"Standing O" Society

The CYT “Standing O” Society is part of our commitment to excellence and provides support that CYT can count on! Members of the “Standing O” Society are people or businesses who support CYT with a monthly monetary gift. That support is vital to the financial health of CYT and helps us continue to provide training in the arts in an atmosphere of excellence.  Just click on the button below and make your donation a "recurring payment" of $25.00 or more.
Building a strong community is our desire but not everyone can afford the opportunity to participate in our programming. It costs $1,500 for one student to participate in a full year of CYT with our Classes, Camps and Shows. We never want to turn anyone away and we continue to grant scholarships to families in need. You can give to our general Sponsorship Fund and help students build their character on and off the stage.

To donate to our General Sponsorship Fund, select People as your donation designation.
Our desire at CYT is to develop Character on the stage through Classes, Camps and Shows as well as off the stage with our Find Your Character Project.

A CYT San Diego Student

More Than Just A Show!

CYT's programs are about so much more than musical theater! We are dedicated to developing character in children and adults one stage at a time.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we are able to serve our community by providing quality, affordable educational programs, and productions. However, ticket sales and class tuition are not sufficient to cover the cost of delivering top-notch programming.

A gift to CYT is an investment in an established, family-oriented organization that helps provide young people a safe, wholesome environment and skills to make better life choices so that they become positive, contributing members of their community. CYT also allows young people to explore the arts in an atmosphere that nurtures their inner creativity while developing their character.
