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 a current production. Participation in production requires additional fees. 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.

School Days Field Trips - NOW OPEN!!!

CYT brings the best in children’s theater to students throughout Southern Arizona. Literature from the classroom comes to life on stage in quality productions with colorful costumes, professional staging, energetic choreography and singing. All performers and crew members are students ages 8 –18. Educational guides are available to help prepare your students for the performance, discussing the story and explaining theater etiquette.

CYT School Day performances are designed specifically for elementary and middle school classes. Last year over 1,500 students attended our productions.

Production Teams

Parents are the backbone of CYT! Without them, CYT would not be the family-oriented organization that it is and could not produce the high-quality community shows that it does.

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

Backstage Crew and Tech

The backstage crew and tech teams are the "magic" that make a show happen!  All members of our crew have the ability to learn sound, lights, running projections, and backstage crew where you are moving sets on and off the stage for scene changes. Our stage managers for each production are seasoned crew kids that found their passion in running these technical aspects of the show.  Check out our current list of classes to see if there is a tech class offering near you or simply join one of our shows as crew to start learning how it all works!
