CYT Atlanta, Alpharetta Georgia
Educational and Performance Company
Christian Youth Theater (CYT) is an after-school theater arts training program for students ages 4-18. Since it’s founding in 1980, CYT has grown to be the largest youth theater program in the nation, with branches across the country training thousands of students a year. CYT Atlanta develops character and creativity in kids of all ages through quality theater arts training that brings families and communities together while reflecting the Creator.
CYT Atlanta’s yearly calendar is made up of three ten-week sessions: fall, winter and spring. Sessions involve after-school classes in theater arts and the opportunity to audition and perform in a Broadway-style musical or work behind-the-scenes. Additionally, CYT offers a summer session consisting of camps, workshops, and performance opportunities.
CYT stands in the forefront in its commitment to the highest ethical, moral, technical, and artistic standards of excellence. Instructors are professionals, qualified in teaching and/or performing, who understand our mission statement, values, objectives, and goals.
CYT offers classes for students’ ages 4-18 throughout the school year. Classes include drama, voice, dance, and behind-the-scenes training in makeup, costumes, tech, and more. Classes are held for two hours once a week and run for ten consecutive weeks in fall, winter and spring sessions.
Enrollment in CYT classes provides students ages 8-18 the opportunity to audition for the current production. CYT Atlanta produces one Broadway-style musical each session (fall, winter, and spring). CYT shows are always appropriate for the entire family and are an excellent way to introduce children to the arts at a young age!
During the summer, CYT Atlanta puts on weeklong musical theater day camps for students ages 4-18. Camps are designed to be a fun and energetic immersion into the world of musical theater. Camps are jam-packed with games, activities, and interactive workshops that build performance skills, self-confidence, and teamwork. Typical camps include team competitions; rotations through drama, dance, and music workshops; and a concluding showcase for family and friends. Some Branches host overnight camps for older students. Through praise, worship, prayer, and daily devotions, CYT teen camps are particularly focused on spiritual growth. CYT Summer Camps are all about fun, friendships, and theatrics. Camps are great yearly tradition for your child!
