About CCT Baton Rouge

CYT Baton Rouge has opened a new community theater program called Christian Community Theater (CCT Baton Rouge). CCT Baton Rouge produces one full-length, Broadway style musical each year.

Christian Community Theater is a program of CYT that allows adults to have the same positive, uplifting theatre experience that our youth students have. CCT upholds the same values as CYT.
