You need three things in the theater - the play, the actors and the audience, and each must GIVE something. - Kenneth Haigh

For more than 13 years, Carolina Youth Theatre (CYT) has served young people by using the performing arts to build character and self-esteem, develop leadership and communication skills, and mold caring and productive citizens.

This summer, the stage lights are dark and our community’s spirit is dimmed, but Carolina Youth Theatre is still shining bright. CYT Sings! A Concert for the Community will be livestreamed via Facebook on Thursday, July 30 at 7:00pm. This virtual benefit concert is a collaboration between current CYT students and alumni and will feature uplifting Broadway tunes that affirm the importance of community.

Carolina Youth Theatre will share 50% of the concert's net proceeds with the Clayton Chamber Foundation’s Small Business Grant Fund. The Clayton Chamber Foundation established the Small Business Grant Fund in response to the economic hardship caused by COVID-19. By partnering with the Clayton Chamber Foundation, CYT has the opportunity to give back to the local business community that has generously supported it over the years.

Thank you for helping us reach our goal!
