An annual budget of more than $150,000 pays for costumes, sets, props, sound, lights, rental of theaters and classroom space, teacher stipends, artistic team stipends, curriculum writing and design, royalties and many other training and production costs. Only about 70% of the total comes from ticket sales and tuition and fees. CYT Wichita must raise more than $42,000 each year to ensure that all the productions and student programs are adequately funded.
We have seen God’s confirmation of the need for CYT in Wichita, and many evidences of His provision throughout our startup. After budget tweaking and a variety of sponsorship donations, GOD has miraculously kept our budget and sponsorship goals on track. During our inaugural year, our need appeared to be impossible and daunting. Today, the CYT Wichita Board stands in awe of God's provision.
Philanthropic support is critical to CYT Wichita to continue to make the program affordable. CYT Wichita has made a conscious effort to keep both tuition and ticket prices low in order to make the program accessible for families throughout Wichita. Without charitable support, the CYT Wichita program could not be sustained at a reasonable cost to the students. Because the CYT Wichita program involves a new group of students every year – in addition to those who continue in the program – it is critically important for CYT Wichita to generate consistent sources of revenue. Would you consider sending in a $100-$1,000 gift and help CYT meet budget?
CYT Wichita is looking to the leaders of today, who truly believe that funds invested in youth are an investment in our future, which goes to the heart of the CYT Wichita mission. Charitable support allows CYT Wichita to grow and enhance the quality of the training and productions. A gift to CYT Wichita is an investment with an established, family-oriented organization that helps provide children a safe, wholesome environment and provides them with skills to make better life choices and become positive contributing members of their community.

CYT is committed to training young people in theatrical elements of drama, voice and dance while "Developing Character...one stage at a time." This process requires mentoring at all age levels with a commitment to fostering relationships. Stardom is not primary, rather, mutual support and encouragement. Christian...Youth...Theater does not mean the product should suffer. Rather, by utilizing, nurturing and fostering the God-given talents within our youth and community, professional upscale entertainment can knock our socks off!
Pray for God's excellence in both character and product.
Pray the people of CYT will impact the Wichita community in excellence of character, performance, entertainment, and delight those who are watching.
Pray for the teachers and directors to encourage and challenge our students on and off the stage.
Pray for our facilities and the people who work in them.
Pray for our Board and Staff to make decisions that reflect the Mission and Beliefs of CYT.
May God be glorified in all we do!
