CCYT offers various programs throughout the year. We offer spring and fall classes that focus on specific skills such as acting, improvisation, or vocal techniques. In addition, our summer musical theatre workshop is a comprehensive experience where students learn many aspects of theatre arts. Our Workshop classes culminate in performances through various mediums including live performances, music videos, and digital web series. Read more about our programs below.

Summer Musical Theatre Workshop
Under the direction of Edgar Acevedo, the Summer Theatre Workshop program is committed to creating quality children’s theatre. Since its founding in 2012 it has become the cornerstone of our programs.
Students workshop on the Columbia County Fairgrounds in Chatham, NY and perform on the Chatham HS stage. Divided by age into 5 classes, each class works on and performs an age-appropriate musical. CCYT’s resident directors, choreographers, and vocal instructors are child-centered professionals who ensure that each student’s potential is reached. The program also serves students interested in technical theatre as well as older students interested in our intern program.
