Junior Company

This program is open to young people in grades 3 – 5. 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 theater basics and skill. The Junior Company rehearses Fridays from 4-5:30pm and Saturdays from 12:00-1:30 pm. A full scale production with costumes, set, lights and music is presented for three 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 $425.   Tuition includes a show t-shirt. No audition required.

The 2021 season includes:

Willy Wonka JR

In Roald Dahl’sWilly Wonka JR., a world-famous reclusive candy man named Willy Wonka announces that he will offer the tour of the lifetime through his secret chocolate factory to five children who find a golden ticket in one of his world-famous candy bars. One ticket-holder will also win a lifetime supply of chocolate. Against all odds, an impoverished but sweet-natured boy named Charlie Bucket wins a golden ticket. He and his fellow tour members —the spoiled-rotten Veruca Salt, gluttonous Augustus Gloop, gum-chewing Violet Beauregarde and television junkie Mike Teavee — spend a day traveling with the mysterious and marvelous Willy Wonka and his crew of Oompa Loompas through the fantastical factory. The children encounter marvelous sights and tastes along the way, including giant nut-selecting squirrels, fizzy lifting drinks, Everlasting Gobstoppers, and a chocolate river. But each stop proves to be a test, as only one can go on to win the Wonka prize. Willy Wonka JR. is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International.
