a little about..

Concord Youth Theatre

Concord Youth Theatre, Inc., founded in 1976 as Act/Tunes, is a non-profit educational organization committed to making high-quality live theatre accessible, relevant, and memorable for young people and their families. The purpose of Concord Youth Theatre is to enrich the lives of young people by providing opportunities for them to be actively involved in the creative process through participation in a variety of live theatre experiences under the leadership of professionals.

Through our performance company productions, theatre arts classes, summer workshops and guest artist performances, CYT teaches young people skills not only essential for performance on the stage, but even more critical to their success in school, work and social settings.

CYT wishes to thank all those who have supported us through the years. As we have for our first 40 years, we will continue to strive to meet the ever-changing needs of our patrons and students!

Here's What's Happening at CYT!

CYT Update

To our CYT family and friends-

As you know, we have been closely monitoring the coronavirus outbreak. After careful thought and consideration and with the well being of our students, guests and staff as our main priority, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our remaining two performances of Pinocchio originally scheduled for this Friday and Saturday. 

CYT will also cancel ALL classes and rehearsals through March 30th as we try to help prevent the spread of the virus within our community. At that time, with the guidance of the Massachusetts public health officials we will re-evaluate and communicate our next steps.

We will miss seeing all of you! 

Please be safe, stay healthy and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to CYT.
