Everything a Show Parent (and Student) Needs - All in One Place!

Welcome Parents! We are thrilled you are here! CYT relies heavily on the support of our parents and we want your involvement behind the scenes to be as rewarding and fun as your child's experience onstage! This is your "one stop shop" for all information and forms related to the show: everything from the audition process ... to parent production teams... to the cast party. Once the show is cast, this page will be chock full of details related to our rehearsal/show cycle.
