CYT Programs

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, Improvathon, and the yearly CYT EXPO.

The act of memory is a physical act and lies at the heart of the art of the theatre. If the theatre were a verb, it would be ‘to remember’.

The IMPROVATHON is an annual comedy showcase and competitive theater event for CYT students. Improv Teams from all over the country get together each summer at the CYT EXPO to take part in the IMPROVATHON competition. It’s a hilarious way for students to showcase their talents, think quickly, and step out of their comfort zones.
In anticipation of the 2020 Improv Team auditions, CYT Spokane will be offering an Improv Team Auditioner’s Workshop. If you are interested in auditioning for this year’s team -  this workshop is for YOU!

High School Youth Pursuing Excellence

** Applications for the 2019-2020 HYPE Team DUE Friday, July 12th! **

High School Youth Pursuing Excellence (HYPE) is a leadership training group designed to challenge and guide the advanced students of CYT to be leaders inside and outside of CYT. Getting involved by serving the community around them, continuing to grow as an individual, and committing themselves to excellence in all they do are the core components of this CYT program.


The CYT EXPO is an annual celebration of our CYT family. It is a chance for us to bring unity to CYT Affiliates across the country through workshops, gathering, sharing, and more (which includes singing, dancing & performing – we are CYT, after all). The EXPO includes CYT students as well as Affiliate leadership.
The three-day EXPO hosts our national Improvathon competition, HYPE trainings, leadership meetings, and student activities.


Christian Community Theater (CCT) is a community theater program that has open auditions to the general public for age appropriate roles, typically during the summer. CCT shows are wholesome, family entertainment for the entire community.
