Thank you for your continued support of CYT!

Cheshire Youth Theatre Workshop

July 15th to July 19th | 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

For students entering the 4th grade to 12th grade.
Space is limited, there are only 50 slots in this program.



A one-week program to educate on theatre skills & grow in confidence and develop creativity. The purpose of this week is to develop theatre skills through classes in various areas of the theatre including acting, tech, and stage. While there may be an opportunity to showcase all that was learned throughout this week, there will not be a formal production at the end of this week. Please know, this program is separate from CYT, but there will be a discount if a child signs up for both.
Improvisation: This multi-day workshop is made up of fun physical and mental exercises, group activities, and scene-work. In each segment, students will learn the basic tenets of improvisation such as: saying “yes, and…,” supporting each other, making positive choices, committing to the reality of the scene, and most importantly empowering the self. In this workshop, there are no mistakes. These valuable lessons in improv are great for the stage and even better for life.
Résumé Workshop: This 2-part segment will show how to create a theatrical résumé and tailor it to each opportunity that arises. 
Guest Spotlight: We strive to bring in community and big-name artists that specialize in a sector of theater to teach mini lessons & answer questions about their career.
Theater Keywords: Learn the vocabulary needed to easily succeed on stage and in all parts of the theater world with this multi-day workshop.
Theatrical Respect: General topic guiding theater artists in the best way to respect each other and create a more cooperative environment. We will focus on recognizing distracting behavior and the proper care of costumes, set pieces, & props. This multi-segment workshop will also cover proper protocol for interacting with each other on stage as well as behind the scenes. 

And Much More!
