CYT Impact Opportunities

Christian Youth Theater develops character and creativity in kids of all ages through quality theater arts training that brings families and communities together while reflecting the Creator. CYT also depends on community support to fulfill our mission county-wide.  Supporting CYT through sponsorships and advertising is a great way to get your business seen by your community.  Each one of CYT Portland's productions are generally viewed by 1,500-2,500 patrons.

Advertising Information

CYT Portland is the local branch of a national youth theater organization that serves over 20,000 students across the country.

We use musical theater to build character in a safe, non-competitive environment. Every year we produce 3 professional Broadway-style musicals. If you attend you'll be blown away by the quality -- and then you're realize that everyone on stage is between 8 and 18 years of age!  

Each of these shows costs between $25,000 and $45,000 to produce. In order to keep the cost as low as we can for the families of the students involved, we offer the community the opportunity to advertise in the program for each of our shows.

We produce a professional keepsake quality program for each show. While the bulk of the program is devoted to the cast and the production, we reserve pages for community advertising.

Questions About Advertising with CYT Portland

Q: Who will see my ad?
A: We create a program for each run of shows. Every season features three shows, and each show gets it's own souvenir quality program. The ads are printed in the program given out to every theater attender. More than a thousand people will see each show. These are families that are actively engaged in their communities.

Q: What is the cost?
A: Ads range from $150 - $800 for publication in the program for a single production. See this year's pricing matrix at the bottom of the page for details for all ad sizes and costs.

Q: Can I see what one of these programs looks like?
A: Sure.  CLICK THIS LINK to download a .pdf of one of our recent programs. (The link will tell you it can't preview.  That's only because the file is quite large. Hit the download button.) Note that the cover and inside-cover are printed in full color.  The interior pages are all black & white.

Q: Can I see some examples of ads?
A: Absolutely.  Click any of the following to open. Q: Do I provide art work or does CYT do that for me?
A: In most cases you provide your own artwork. High resolution files in the .pdf, .jpg or .png format are acceptable. Files need to be sized exactly to the size of the ad purchased. In some cases, we can do simple layout for you, if you are absolutely unable to get artwork prepared. Ask the Managing Director about this. There may be a small layout & design fee depending on the complexity of the ad needed.

Q: How can I buy an ad in the next CYT Program?
A: Most ads are sold through our cast families. But if you were not approached in this way, and would still like to advertise, fill out our Program Ad / Sponsorship Form. Then contact our Managing Director if you have any further questions.

Q: When is Payment Due?
A: Payment is required to reserve your advertising space.  Credit card payments will taken at the time the Program Ad / Sponsorship Form is submitted.  Check payments are due within 5 business days made payable to CYT Portland, PO Box 1328, Tualatin, OR 97062.

Q: Any other policies about ads?
A: CYT is a family friendly organization, so we reserve the right to approve of the content as well as the business purchasing the ad. Payment must be received in order to reserve space in our program. Except for the cover and inside cover, all ad placement is determined by CYT.

Q: What's this thing about tickets?
A: In order to thank our sponsors who make these productions possible, we give each sponsoring company free tickets they can use to attend any show for the production they have advertised during. A special coupon code will be emailed to the primary contact listed on the ad form. This coupon code will give the above listed number of free tickets that can be redeemed for any show.
