More Than Just a Show!

CYT's programs are about so much more than musical theater! We are dedicated to developing character in children and adults, one stage at a time.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we are able to serve our community by providing quality, affordable educational programs, and productions. However, ticket sales and class tuition are not sufficient to cover the cost of delivering top-notch programming.

A gift to CYT is an investment in an established, family-oriented organization that helps provide young people a safe, wholesome environment and the skills to make better life choices. CYT's goal is that our students become positive, contributing members of their community. CYT also allows young people to explore the arts in an atmosphere that nurtures their inner creativity while developing their character.

DONORS WHO SUPPORT CYT DESERVE A STANDING OVATION!

We invite you to become a member of the Standing "O" Society by making a tax-deductible donation. Only about 70% of our budget total comes from ticket sales and tuition. CYT Waco makes a conscious effort to keep tuition and ticket prices low in order to make the program accessible for families throughout the Waco area. Your support is critical in order to continue to make the program affordable. 

"It is a fun, Christian group that becomes another family, a home away from home, and I am really glad I am a part of it!"

Standing "O"

CYT  is looking to the leaders of today who truly believe that funds invested in youth are an investment in the future. This goes to the heart of the CYT  mission. Charitable support allows CYT to grow and enhance the quality of the training and productions. A gift to CYT Waco is an investment with an established, family-oriented organization that helps provide children a safe, wholesome environment.  CYT provides our youth the skills to make better life choices and to become positive contributing members in their community.

Benefits of Giving

CYT relies on the donations of patrons in order to provide quality theater education across the country. According to “The Value and Quality of Arts Education: A Statement of Principles”, students who participate in the arts do better in school, stay in school longer, and win more academic awards. They are also three times more likely to go to college and become more confident, considerate, pro-social and pro-civic citizens! Your generous donation ensures that our students are given these benefits so that they can go on to build a stronger world for future generations.
