Christian Youth Theater (CYT) Chicago is one of 28 CYT Branches located throughout the country. CYT Chicago offers weekly classes in voice, drama, and dance, as well as specialty theater classes for students ages 5-18. CYT Chicago typically produces more than 30 mainstage shows every year for students ages 8-18, and holds week-long camps for students 5-18 each summer. Along with classes, camps, and shows, CYT Chicago offers several other opportunities on stage and off for students and adults! CYT has many programs in place that foster theater arts in the community and we’d love for you to take part in the various initiatives that CYT has going on.

Amid the ever-changing situation with the COVID-19 virus, please note that we will continue to follow local and facility guidelines as we continually update our programming. Here at CYT Chicago, we are trying our best to keep our community alive through in-person interactions. Online classes will be provided if in-person options do not meet local guidelines. We continue to reach out to currently registered families with notice of changes to our current programming through callboard posts, emails, and our website.

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances
