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.

(If you are looking for information and forms related to CYT Classes, please go to the Classes web page.)

The Winter 2020 show, Fiddler on the Roof, will be performed March 12-14 at the Worley Barton Theater at Brentwood Christian School. Rehearsal details (and much more!) will be posted on this page soon!
