City Youth Theater is a not-for-profit theater organization dedicated to promoting the theatrical development of all participants. Participants are given a wide range of opportunities to cultivate and enhance their talents in front of an audience and behind the scenes. This is accomplished in an encouraging, stimulating, and supportive environment culminating in a theatrical production.

City Youth Theater (CYT) is a dynamic theater program dedicated to nurturing the creative talents of high school, elementary, and middle school students in Waterbury, Connecticut. Our mission is to foster artistic collaboration, cultivate a strong work ethic, and provide a platform for students to excel both on and off the stage. Through theater classes, workshops, summer camps, and productions, CYT instills invaluable skills that transcend the stage, preparing our students for success in any endeavor they pursue.


CYT is committed to empowering young artists to reach their full potential. By emphasizing the process of artistic collaboration and instilling a focused work ethic, we equip our students with essential skills that extend beyond the realm of theater. The techniques learned and practiced at CYT apply to any endeavor, preparing students for the challenges and opportunities they may encounter in a rapidly evolving world.

CYT relies on the generous support of donors to sustain our programs and initiatives. Through ongoing donations, we can provide scholarships, acquire resources, and maintain our commitment to excellence in arts education. We are deeply grateful for the continued support of our community, which enables us to empower the next generation of artists and leaders.

At City Youth Theater, we believe in the transformative power of theater to inspire, educate, and enrich the lives of young people. Join us on this exciting journey of creativity, collaboration, and growth!
