MainStage Company

MainStage Company is open to young people grades 5 – 12 (4th graders may also audition IF they have performed in two Junior Company shows with CYT within the last year). This company performs plays that are literature based and age appropriate for all. Regular rehearsals are held Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, 3:45 – 6:00 pm. Tech week rehearsals are scheduled daily the week before opening night. Participation in this program is by audition and tuition is $450. Tuition includes a show t-shirt.

We are implementing the following precautions:

Limiting contact 

  • Non-essential adults, including family members of children, will not be allowed access to the building. Drop-off and pick-up will take place outside of the building. 
  • Children and teachers will maintain a distance of 6 feet between individuals.

What to expect when you arrive at CYT

  • Families will be asked to self-screen prior to coming to class, we will send an online form that you can fill out each week one hour before class. 
  • Families will be asked to wear face masks and maintain physical distance of 6 feet while waiting outside the building. 
  • Children will be escorted to their class by CYT staff. 
  • Each child will be asked to sanitize their hands upon entering the building. 

What to expect when you pick up your child from class

• Families will be asked to wait outside, and a CYT staff person will escort their child out of the building. 

Maximizing outdoor time 

  • Class instruction will be held outdoors when possible. 

Use of Personal Protection Equipment to limit transmission 

  • Teachers and staff will wear masks (and face shields, if desired) whenever they are with children or other adults. 
  • All students are expected to wear masks. 

Hygiene and sanitation 

  • All spaces will be sanitized after every class 

Our production for the 2021 season is Honk. We held auditions for Honk last winter before we had to close due to Covid-19. We will not be holding additional auditions at this time. Check back for future audition opportunities. 


Honk! is a musical adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen story The Ugly Duckling. This is the story of Ugly, whose odd, gawky looks instantly incite prejudice from his family and other barnyard creatures. Separated from the farm and pursued by a hungry Cat, Ugly must find his way home. Along his rollicking and harrowing journey he not only discovers his true beauty and glorious destiny, but also finds love and acceptance in all its forms.
