Welcome to Christian Youth Theater

Christian Youth Theater (CYT) is the largest after-school theater arts training program in the nation. Affiliates across the country offer classes in drama, music, dance, technical theater, and more! Each local program offers camps and classes for ages 4-18, and full-scale productions for ages 8-18.

COVID-19 Update

At CYT San Antonio, we are safely keeping community alive through Classes and Shows. You can view our safety precautions below, and we continue to reach out with notice of changes to our current programming through Facebook posts, email, and our website!

Please email us at info@cytsanantonio.org if you have any questions. We will do our best to respond to all inquiries within 24 business hours. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time!


CYT classes include drama, voice, dance, and a broad spectrum of other specialty theatrical workshops. There are three 8 to 10 week sessions a year (Fall, Winter, and Spring), and a showcase at the end of each session that allows students to show off what they have learned to family & friends.


Students that are enrolled in classes have the opportunity to audition and perform (or work behind-the-scenes) in a Broadway-style musical performed for the community. CYT shows are appropriate for the entire family and are an excellent way to introduce children to the arts.


CYT Theater Camps are designed to create a hands-on theater experience. Campers will enjoy making new friends as they build performance skills and learn self-confidence and teamwork. There is no better place for kids to experience theater than in CYT’s positive and encouraging atmosphere - and every camper gets the opportunity to perform on stage!


There are many ways to be part of CYT beyond the stage! CYT programs consist of everything that is not a class, camp, or show. Some of the available programs include HYPE, Christian Community Theater (CCT), and more!
