Winter Show 2021 Update

Due to the winter weather in the Nashville area, we have had to make the following changes to the show schedule. Please read below for available options.
  • The Friday Feb 19 in-person and livestream show has been cancelled 
  • The livestream show has been postponed to Friday Feb 26 at 7pm and all ticket holders are being contacted with details (the link you received remains the same)
  • The Saturday Feb 20 2pm and 7pm in-person shows are still on, as the forecast is for warmer temperatures and sunny weather
  • We are adding a second weekend of shows with three performances, Fri Feb 26 at 7pm, and Sat Feb 27 at 2pm and 7pm

We are offering the following options:
  • If you purchased tickets for Friday Feb 19 in-person show, you can attend any other show, either Saturday Feb 20 or the following weekend - you do not need to request a transfer of ticket or a refund/repurchase, simply show up at your preferred show
  • If you purchased livestream tickets, you have been contacted with available options, which include viewing it next Friday Feb 26 or attending an in-person show if you are in the Nashville area (the link is the same, it is only the time that has been changed)
  • If you purchased Feb 19 tickets and are unable to attend any other show, please contact for livestream options or to request a refund
  • If you purchased Sat Feb 20 tickets and are not comfortable driving, you can come to any show the following weekend and there is no need to request a refund - if you are unable to attend the following weekend please contact for livestream options or a refund
Unless you are requesting a transfer from in-person to livestream or requesting a refund, there is no need to contact us to request a transfer. You can attend any performance of your choice and provide the name of the ticket purchaser.

CYT helped me to become more confident in who I was, but more importantly they encouraged me to see who I was in God's eyes.

Something For Everyone

CYT classes include drama, voice, dance, and a broad spectrum of other specialty theatrical workshops. There are three ten-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.

All The World’s a Stage

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.

What Are Your Summer Plans?

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!
