About CYT Shows

CYT shows are appropriate for the entire family and are an excellent way to introduce children to the arts! CYT produces one Broadway-style musical each session. Enrollment in CYT classes provides students (ages 8-18) the opportunity to audition for a current production. Students not cast in the show are encouraged to participate in other ways. Depending on age and ability, students (and siblings) can participate on the backstage crew, technical team, or the costume and makeup committees.

The Sound of Music

December 19th-22nd
Ball Performing Arts Center- Mclennan Community College

The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical. When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time.

"The unexpected bonus as a parent is watching impromptu worship break out while the kids are taking five. These moments are not lost on these kids and songs of praise are often mixed in with rehearsing their show pieces.
It's beautiful."

Auditions

Students enrolled in CYT classes are invited to audition for CYT's current production. Auditions typically consist of a one-minute cut of a song and a short memorized monologue performed for the Artistic Team. The audition process may also include a “callback” in which a student may be asked to read or sing for a specific character.  Auditions are a wonderful way for students to gain self-confidence and to show the best of their talents!

Parent Committees

Parents are the backbone of CYT!  Without them, CYT would not be the family-oriented organization that it is. 

At least one parent of each student cast in the production is required to serve on a CYT Parent Committee. Options include, but are not limited to: costumes, refreshments, props, greenroom, backstage, public relations, sets, docents, technical, make-up, programs, and house management.
