CYT Rebrands Itself As Carolina Youth Theatre

You are going to be hearing a lot about Carolina Youth Theatre in the coming months. Carolina Youth Theatre is the rebranding of CYT — the popular Clayton Youth Theater, founded in 2007. Carolina Youth Theatre will expand CYT’s premier theatre opportunities to youth across Central and Eastern North Carolina.

Clayton Youth Theater has impacted hundreds of students and has entertained nearly 25,000 patrons. As of the spring of 2019, CYT has formally incorporated as Carolina Youth Theatre.

Carolina Youth Theatre’s first production is The Wizard of Oz. The show will be presented in late July and early August. Auditions, which are open to 2nd through 12th graders across North Carolina, begin April 5.

Among Carolina Youth Theatre’s offerings are camps for elementary and middle school students. The CYT Backstage Pass camp will give 2nd-5th graders a hands-on theatrical experience as they work with CYT directors and cast members to put on a performance themed around The Wizard of Oz.

CYT will also launch Stage Right, a three-week camp for 6th-8th grade students that explores the components of musical theatre, and develops the skills necessary to be successful on stage.
