Junior Company

This program is open to young people in grades 2 – 4. CYT’s Junior Company performs plays that are literature based and age appropriate for all. This company places a strong emphasis on developing confidence and a knowledge of theatre basics and skill. The Junior Company rehearses Fridays from 4-6pm and 4 Saturdays (fall show only) 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. Tech rehearsals will be held for three additional days the week before opening night. A registration form can be downloaded and mailed with a tuition check. Tuition for this program is $400.   No audition required.

The 2017-2018 season includes:

On The Other Side Of The Fence

On the Other Side of the Fence is a story about two farms separated by a big, strong fence.

Aesop’s Musical Foibles

Aesop’s Musical Foibles begins as young Aesop explains to the audience about his problem of constantly hearing annoying voices in his head, which come to life as hysterical characters onstage that only Aesop (and the audience!)  can see and hear.  With the resentful Fox, the egomaniac Hare, the sluggish Tortoise, the zen-like Grasshopper and the Aunt (yes, his mother’s sister!)  and many more, Aesop’s Musical Foibles retells the fables like you’ve never quite heard them before!  Aesop’s Foibles is presented through special arrangement with Pioneer Drama.
