Here's What's Happening at CYT!

A Few Spaces Remain for CYT’S Junior Company – On the Other Side of the Fence

CYT’s Junior Company places a strong emphasis on developing confidence, a knowledge of theatre basics and skill. The Junior Company rehearses Fridays from 4-6pm and 4 Saturdays from 12:30-2:30 pm.  A full scale production with costumes, set, lights and music is presented for four days at the end of the rehearsal process. The Junior Company is a precursor to our Second Stage and Mainstage Companies. Students learn about all of the pieces that go into making a full scale show and become well prepared for the next level of CYT. No audition required.
