Be in a Show!

You can be on the stage (or backstage if you prefer) in one of our musical plays!

The first step is to enroll in one or more of our CYT Classes. We offer a variety of classes in acting, singing, and dancing. Please see our Classes page for more information.

Once you are a enrolled in a class -- and you are aged 8-18 -- then you are eligible to audition for one of our shows.

To learn more about what is involved with being in a CYT production, head over to the Parent Hub. Look for the "First Time Families" section.

We hope to see you soon!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are very young children allowed in your performances? Do I need to buy a ticket for my young child?

Yes. Our shows are family friendly, and we welcome children to attend our shows. Here are our policies for very small children:

Ages 0 - 1 - no ticket needed if seated in the lap of an adult.

Ages 1 and up - a ticket must be purchased for the child, even if they sit in your lap.

If you bring a small child, please be considerate of other audience members; disruptive children and their parent will be asked to leave the auditorium (no refunds if you have to leave the show).

No strollers in the auditorium. Please don't block seats or aisles with car seats or carriers.

Where are my tickets that I purchased online?

We emailed your ticket(s) to the email address you provided when you checked out. Please check your email Spam folder to see if your ticket is there. If you still can't find your ticket, then email, and we will re-send your ticket. Also, you can simply stop by the Box Office when you arrive for the performance, and we will have your name on a list of tickets purchased. 

How long are your shows?

Times vary. If the show has "Jr." in the title, then it will probably be between 1.5 and 2 hours. Other shows are usually between 2.5 to 3 hours long.

Can I return or get a refund for my ticket(s)?

No. Tickets cannot be returned or refunded.

Can I switch my tickets for a different performance time?

Sorry, no exchanges.

Do you have spaces for Wheelchair seating?

Yes. There are four spaces for wheelchairs (these are color coded in our ticket sales seating chart). You can purchase tickets for these spaces. We also have color coded wheelchair companion seats, which are simply the theater seats next to the wheelchair spaces. These companion seats can be purchased by anyone, but are color coded on the ticket sales seating chart to give preference to those accompanying audience members using wheelchairs.

Do you give ticket discounts for Seniors?

No. We do not offer Senior discounts, but we do offer group discounts for groups of 15 or more people, including seniors.

Do you have gift certificates?

No. We do not have gift certificates.
