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. 

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

Rehearsal Schedule

We hold rehearsals three days a week. Not all students are called for every rehearsal. It is critical that you indicate ALL rehearsal conflicts when you audition. Please note that the schedule below may change slightly. A detailed scene/song/dance rehearsal schedule will be released after rehearsals begin.
