Get involved in CYT beyond the stage! CYT Tri-Valley 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.

Share your talent for CYT and you could win a virtual Meet & Greet with Film Director of Crazy Rich Asians and In the Heights, Jon M. Chu!
CYT is celebrating 40 years of character building through theater arts and is calling ANYONE of all ages, from across the nation, to share your talent for CYT! COVID-19 has hit the world hard, and CYT is no exception. With a total goal of $1,000,000, this nationwide fundraising event will benefit ALL CYTs around the country as we look forward to the next 40 years with jazz hands lifted high!
For the first time ever, you can sing in the CYT Tri-Valley Virtual Choir! We will be recording "You Raise Me Up" (sung by Josh Groban) in 4-part harmony. Ms. Rita has practice videos for you to help you learn your part, and Ms. Marina will be giving you instructions on how to video your singing and where to submit it. (Your videos will need to be submitted by Friday, 5/15.) The virtual choir video will be shown on 6/13, at our Showcase! We need your voice, so please consider taking part!

My CYT Story

The National My CYT Story Competition invites students ages 12-18 to share their CYT Story with the world. Winners are first selected locally at the Branch level, and then each Branch winner moves on and is entered into the National Competition. Winners receive prizes and national recognition at the annual CYT EXPO.


The Decathlon Award recognizes exceptional CYT students who have demonstrated a love for theater by pursuing a well-rounded education in the theater arts and who have exhibited a character consistent with CYT values. The award includes a certificate of recognition to be presented at the CYT EXPO, as well as a personal letter of recommendation from Paul Russell, CYT Co-Founder.


High School Youth Pursuing Excellence (HYPE) is a leadership training group designed to challenge and guide the advanced students of CYT to be leaders inside and outside of CYT. Getting involved by serving the community around them, continuing to grow as an individual, and committing themselves to excellence in all they do are the core components of this CYT program.


The CYT EXPO is an annual celebration of our CYT family. It is a chance for us to bring unity to CYT Branches across the country through workshops, gathering, sharing, and more! The EXPO is open to CYT students and Branch leadership and hosts our national Improvathon competition, HYPE trainings, leadership meetings, and student activities. Come be a part of the bigger CYT picture!
The annual CYT National Leadership Conference (NLC) provides an opportunity for CYT Leadership such as Artistic Directors, Managing Directors, Coordinators (Chapter, Shows, Classes, Camps), Board Members, and more, to step away from the day-to-day operations of CYT and invest in the organization through training, fellowship, and commitment to what we do.
