Last summer, in the midst of a pandemic, CYT defined success in two words … “DO SOMETHING!” Despite the odds, we produced CYT Sings!, a virtual benefit concert that provided a safe and meaningful performance opportunity for our students. The icing on the cake? Our students used their talents for something larger than themselves and raised nearly $8,000 for the Clayton Chamber Foundation Small Business Grant Fund. Watch a recap HERE.
This summer, we are defining success as being back onstage in front of a live audience! To make that goal a reality, CYT has decided to pivot its summer programming and stage a play rather than our annual musical. A play will offer a safer format for rehearsals and performances, and provide a clearer path to getting back onstage.
While it’s difficult to predict exactly how the summer will unfold, CYT is committed to providing an educational, performance-based experience for our students with safety and well-being as our top priorities. In addition, we look forward to welcoming back audiences and providing another high-quality production for our community.
Join us this summer! The show must go on!
P.S. The announcement of our summer production is just around the corner. Mark your calendar for March 1, and check CYT’s website and social media accounts for the BIG reveal!
