Every time I step out onto that stage, I have the opportunity to use my God given talents and passion to portray a soul, a portion of another’s story.

About CYT Shows

CYT shows are appropriate for the entire family and are an excellent way to introduce children to the arts!
CYT produces one Broadway-style musical each session. Enrollment in CYT classes provides students (ages 8-18) the opportunity to audition for their branch’s current production. Students not cast in the show are encouraged to participate in other ways. Depending on age and ability, students (and siblings) can participate on the backstage crew, technical team, or the costume and makeup committees.

Audition Notice!
Auditions for Aladdin Jr. will be held April 1, 2021

 
  • Students ages 8-18 are eligible to Audition for Aladdin Jr.    Details on eligibility age: Students must turn 8 years old by our last performance (June 6) to be eligible.  Students must by 18 or younger through the run of our show (through June 6). 
  • Students must be registered for a spring session class to audition.

  • Students will audition in groups of 10.  Please prepare a vocal audition song that is no longer than 90 seconds.  All vocal auditions must be performed with a backing track.  There will not be an accompanist and you may not audition singing a capella.  After the vocal audition, each group of 10 will be taught a dance to perform for the artistic team.  No advance preparation is needed for the dance audition portion.
  • Callbacks will be held on Saturday, April 3rd.  Not all students who audition will receive a callback.  Just because you did not receive a callback, does not mean you aren't cast in the production.  A callback is just a second look for the Artistic Team and isn't necessary for all students.
  • A cast list will be posted on our website by Monday, April 5 at 5:00pm.
  • Auditions, rehearsals & performances will be held at Colorado Springs Christian Schools.

  • Other than the production fee, possible costs involved in this production are for shoes, socks/tights, makeup and a background check for parent volunteers. Optional costs would be for a photo memory book, show sweatshirt or t-shirts for family members, or other gift or memory items offered for sale.
  • At least one parent from each family is asked to serve on one or more production team (costumes, sets, props, concessions, publicity, photography, box office, etc.) .  Any adult serving on a production team or volunteering with our show is required to have a background check.

Auditions

Students enrolled in CYT classes are invited to audition for their branch’s current production. Auditions typically consist of a one-minute song performed for the Artistic Team, with the possibility to learn and perform a short dance routine. The audition process may also include a “callback” in which a student may be asked to read for a speaking role in the play.  Auditions are a wonderful way for students to gain self-confidence and to show the best of their talents!

Production Teams

Parents are the backbone of CYT! Without them, CYT would not be the family-oriented organization that it is and could not produce the high-quality community shows that it does.

At least one parent of each student cast in the production must serve on a CYT Production Team. 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 county. 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. Docents are available for classroom presentations to help prepare your students for the performance, discussing the story and explaining theater etiquette. The docent may also display props and costumes, demonstrate stage techniques or bring along a cast member. 

CYT School Day performances are designed specifically for elementary and middle school classes. Last year over 40,000 students attended our productions.
