Teaching Artists

CYT Portland currently has 1 class location in the area, and serves children from ages 4-18 in our theatrical classes, workshops, and summer camps.  In addition to our public classes in the fall, winter, and spring, CYT Portland also offers summer day camps and master class workshops in summer.

We are always looking for gifted educators in all forms of acting, singing, dancing, improv, music, technical, and more.

Artistic Teams

CYT Portland proudly produces 6 fully-staged musicals each year, with outstanding lighting, sound, sets, and costumes. Cast sizes generally range from 40-80 kids, all between the ages of 8 and 18.  CYT shows are a unique opportunity to work with up-and-coming talent in a fun and relaxed setting, while teaching them the importance of having a professional work ethic.  These shows become magic with the help of directors, musical directors, and choreographers who are creative and can communicate that creativity in a productive and positive way.

Orchestra and Band Members

Though many shows now have high-quality instrumental tracks, there are still plenty of opportunities for local musicians in the community to utilize their talents for the stage. From pianists to percussionists, the magic of a live orchestra breathes life and energy into our shows and into the performers.

If you are interested in playing in a future CYT/CCT band or orchestra, please email the Artistic Director at tvanwetten@cytportland.org to be added to our musicians contact list.


CYT has endless opportunities for internships of all kinds. Stage direction, music, choreography, costume design, set building, graphic design, administration, and more!  Working with CYT is a great way to improve your skills, grow your knowledge, and gain experience working in all aspects of theater and business.  Internships happen in our local CYT class and show facilities.
