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.

Elf the Musical Jr.

November 15th-18th
Lee Lockwood Library and Museum

Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa's permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Beauty and the Beast

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

High School Musical

May 23rd-26th
Lee Lockwood Library and Museum

It's the first day after winter break at East High. The Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians and Skater Dudes find their cliques, recount their vacations and look forward to the new year. Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy, discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled at East High. They cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical that is being led by Ms. Darbus. Although many students resent the threat posed to the "status quo," Troy and Gabriella's alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well.

"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.
