Year End Giving 2023

We don’t always need a fancy script to tell a good story.

Stories emerge from people, circumstances, and God-given talents that bring us to unexpected places and experiences. And so it is with CYT Chicago and the stories you've heard.

Through the generosity of our patrons, friends, and families, CYT continues to teach quality theater arts classes, provide scholarships to families in need, and produce top-notch shows.

Will you support CYT Chicago and invest in our excellence-driven, family-centered theater arts training?

  • Over 100 students received financial aid last season.
  • The average cost to produce one musical is $35,000.
  • Most costs are up 28%, including facilities, insurance, programming, and royalties. Will you help us fill the gap?
  • Tuition assistance for families in need.
  • Update vital sound equipment. Help our hardworking students be heard!
  • In February 2024, we need $150,000 for next season’s venue and rights deposits.
Your CYT story matters.
Real stories. Real impact.

Thank you for your financial gift and helping us continue to make a positive impact in the lives of students and their families across northern Illinois and southeastern Wisconsin and in our communities. Your gift has far-reaching and long-term affects.
