CYT Internship Program

The CYT Internship Program is a program seeking to develop our young leaders through intentional training in theater leadership that best suits their gifts, talents, and abilities. In this one-session internship, you will be assigned to a Director or Coordinator in you field of choice and instructed one-on-one by that lead. You will also meet with the other interns and the Intern Coordinator once a week to support the workload and growth-curve of each intern. During these meetings you will focus on position accountability, processing & advocacy needed within the Show Team. After the session you will have gained invaluable skills, been given opportunities to grow in your field of choice, and you will have grownin your leadership skills.

CYT@school is devoted to introducing performing arts to children, one school at a time, by providing a high-quality experience that is educational and enjoyable.

Many schools have had to cut their arts programs so CYT@school is dedicated to bringing to your school a low-cost, after school program developed to support the performing arts training in public and private schools. Research has shown that performing arts helps students gain confidence, build leadership skills and develop a sense of community. CYT wants to ensure that students everywhere have an opportunity to experience theater arts.

Our program consists of 8 weeks of drama, voice, and dance which offer sound theater art instruction while also building character. All participating students will perform in an end-of-session showcase that is literature based while still being very popular with students. Our teachers are enthusiastic, fun, positive role models who lead and inspire.

Showcase options include favorites such as Aladdin, The Jungle Book, Lion King, Peter Pan, and more!
