"Peter and the Starcatcher" 5 FREE shows June 17-19 

This Tony Award-winning play upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be Peter Pan.  From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling friends and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher  playfully explores the challenges of growing up and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.

A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff.  They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo.  At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is Starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands.  When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.

Featuring an ensemble cast portraying more than 100 unforgettable characters, Peter and the Starcatcher  uses the limitless possibilities of imagination to bring the story to life.

A FREE, outdoor production with 5 performances June 17-19.


CYT shows are appropriate for the entire family and are an excellent way to introduce children to the arts!
CYT produces one Broadway-style musical each session. Enrollment in CYT classes provides students (ages 8-18) the opportunity to audition for their Chapter’s current production. Students not cast in the show are encouraged to participate in other ways. Depending on age and ability, students (and siblings) can participate on the backstage crew, technical team, or the costume and makeup committees.

School Days

CYT brings the best in children’s theater to students throughout the county. Literature from the classroom comes to life on stage in quality productions with colorful costumes, professional staging, energetic choreography and singing. All performers and crew members are students ages 8 –18. Docents are available for classroom presentations to help prepare your students for the performance, discussing the story and explaining theater etiquette. The docent may also display props and costumes, demonstrate stage techniques or bring along a cast member.
CYT School Day performances are designed specifically for elementary and middle school classes. Last year over 40,000 students attended CYT productions.

Production Team

Parents are the backbone of CYT! Without them, CYT would not be the family-oriented organization that it is and could not produce the high-quality community shows that it does.
Parents are required to commit to production volunteer hours, you can find more information on specific requirements on the Parent Portal.
Production Teams may work on Set building, costuming, make up, sound and media tech, ticketing, ushering, backstage coordinator, snack counter, props, etc. etc. etc.

Hey, CYT, if you're Christian, why do you choose certain shows?

Sometimes we get asked, "Why Does CYT Produce Fairy Tales and Classic Children’s Stories? Why doesn’t CYT do more Biblical stories? What is Christian about doing Fairy Tales? Why are we training children to work in the entertainment field? What is spiritual about children’s literature?"
