Get involved in CYT beyond the stage! CYT has many programs in place that foster theater arts in the community and we’d love for you to take part in the various initiatives that CYT has going on.


High School Youth Pursuing Excellence (HYPE) is a leadership training program designed to challenge and guide the advanced students of Christian Youth Theater (CYT) to be leaders both inside and outside of CYT. The core components of this CYT program are getting involved by serving the community around them, continuing to grow as an individual, and committing themselves to excellence in all they do.


The Improvathon is an annual comedy showcase and competitive theater event for CYT students. Teams from all over the country get together each summer at the CYT EXPO to take part in the IMPROVATHON competition. It’s a hilarious way for students to showcase their talents, think quickly, and step out of their comfort zones.


CYT wants to ensure that students everywhere have an opportunity to experience the wonderful world of theater. CYT@school is a low-cost after school program that supports performing arts training in public and private schools.

The CYT@school program consists of eight weeks of drama, voice, and dance training which offers sound theater art instruction while also building character. All participating students perform in an end-of-session Showcase that is literature-based while still being very popular with students. Our teachers are enthusiastic positive role models who lead and inspire.


The EXPO is an annual gathering for CYT students and leadership held late June. The goal of EXPO is to equip, play, and connect with affiliates from across the country!
