I truly believe that God sent me to CYT as a kind of a Guardian Angel to help me with my task of overcoming anxiety.

It costs roughly $25,000 to bring CYT to a new city and this year we want to partner with you to bring CYT to not just one, but TWO NEW COMMUNITIES. With a total goal of $50,000, and a deadline of December 31st, we hope you will help us GIVE CYT this year.

Donor Benefits

CYT relies on the donations of patrons so we can 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.

"Standing O" Club

The CYT Standing “O” Club is part of our commitment to excellence and provides support that CYT can count on! Members of the “Standing O” Club are people or businesses who support CYT with a monthly or special monetary gift. That support is vital to the financial health of CYT and helps us continue to provide training in the arts in an atmosphere of excellence.


CYT aims to give access to theater arts for all kids regardless of financial situation. As such, CYT makes scholarships available to families in need. Scholarships are available for up to half of one class tuition. Your donations help give kids who wouldn’t otherwise have the chance  an opportunity to participate in our programs.
