Students enrolled in CYT classes are invited to audition for CYT's current production. Auditions typically consist of a one-minute song and a short memorized monologue performed for the Artistic Team. The audition process may also include a “callback” in which a student may be asked to read or sing for a specific character.  Auditions are a wonderful way for students to gain self-confidence and to show the best of their talents! Auditions are open to family members who would like to attend and watch. We do ask that no babies or toddlers be in attendance as to not distract the auditioning students during this important time. 

First, download the  Audition Forms HERE.   

Next, complete your audition forms and prepare your 1 minute audition music (audio track, no sheet music). See Audition FAQs for more information.

Then, upload all of your audition paperwork HERE. In addition to uploading your audition paperwork, please bring your completed paperwork to the live audition.

Come to auditions on Saturday, January 13th at 9:00 a.m. at Hope Chapel Church. Auditions begin at 9:00 a.m.; please arrive early to have time to check in and get settled in your seat. You should bring:
  1. The printed forms in your audition packet that you have also uploaded to Dropbox.
  2. A lunch and water bottle with your name on it. No peanuts or tree nuts allowed.

Auditions are open to parents and family members, and callbacks are closed.

Our shows are a unique and exciting endeavor. We work together to create a professional production in just nine weeks. The show and rehearsal process are vital tools in our mission to develop character through training in the arts. Not only will your student learn to perform, but they will also learn who they are and their value as a member of the cast.

CYT Productions are fast-paced. We do an enormous amount in just a few weeks. There are loads of
details to manage, places to be, and responsibilities that all of us carry so that your student’s experience can be the best it can be. This manual has been designed to give you a clear picture of what to expect, what you and your student need to do and when, and how we all can work together for the best show possible.

Parent Committees

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
Psalm 133:1

CYT puts a high value on supporting the family unit through the direct involvement of each family member’s talents, interests and abilities.Parents are the backbone of CYT! Without them, CYT would not be the family-oriented organization that it is, in addition to producing high-quality shows! 

At least one parent of each student cast in the production is required to serve on a CYT Parent Committee. Options include, but are not limited to: costumes, refreshments, props, greenroom, backstage, public relations, sets, docents, technical, make-up, programs, and house management. 

School Days

CYT brings the best in children’s theater to students throughout the Austin. Literature from the classroom comes to life on stage in quality productions with colorful costumes, professional staging, energetic choreography and singing. All performers and crew members are students ages 8 –18.  CYT School Day performances are designed specifically for elementary and middle school classes.
