COVID-19 UPDATE 6/30/2020

There are so many factors that go into putting on a CYT show, and now add in direction from federal, state and local entities, as well as our facilities, etc. and we find ourselves in uncertain and unchartered territory. Decisions we are making are not easy, and we understand there will be many emotions surrounding these decisions. But here we are. We find ourselves with an opportunity - a mission within a mission - how can we engage our creativity in theatre arts and serve others in light of the coronavirus pandemic? 

Social distancing is perhaps the greatest mission at this time - It's about living with compassion and courage, doing something difficult in order to slow the spread of the virus in order to protect the vulnerable in our communities, including our CYT community, patrons, and beyond. While attending CYTKC perfomances, we ask that you adhere to all social distancing regulations in our community.

All performances will be socially distanced outside in the backyard of a private residence.  Please bring your lawn chairs or blanket to sit on during the performance.  Please prepare to bring a mask in case state guidelines require outdoor mask wear at the time of the performance.  We also encourage you to bring your own snacks, drinks (no alcoholic beverages) and bug spray.  It is highly recommended that you buy your tickets online before the performance.  Tickets will not be "sold" at the door. If you choose to wait to purchase tickets until you arrive, the performance could be sold out. There are only 60 tickets available for each performance.  If there are tickets available, you will be asked to purchase your tickets by using your own phone.
Parking Information:  Please park your cars at BVNW High School (13260 Switzer Road, Overland Park, KS 66213). Curbside drop off is available. Please do not park in the neighborhood as we may be asked to move cars and that would disrupt the performance. 
There will be very limited restroom availability. 
Masks are not required but highly recommended.

We are currently following federal, state (KS) and local (Johnson County) guidelines. As these guidelines change, we will update our policies.  


"Thank you for bringing this show to CYTKC. It made me want to be a better role model for the younger generation and showed me I can make a difference. It also reminded me to love others as I want to be loved."
