Please excuse this non-profit commercial interruption….
We’re raising funds for our two Youth Theaters, that serve approximately 70 NYC students Sept. – May Tuesdays (4-6:30) and Wednesdays (4-6:30) at NO COST (to them). I’d welcome anyone’s support – however big or small.
The elevator speech:
About the CAT Youth Theatre
“CAT Youth Theatre is about learning and growing. Everyone listens and is open without judgment. I don’t know who I would be without CAT.” – YT Alum
CAT Youth Theatre is a FREE program that helps young people to thrive – on stage and in life. Members create socially relevant original plays while learning vital life skills, enabling youth to become self-confident, compassionate and accountable; to develop relationships across differences; build community; and be prepared to act as contributing citizens.
The collaborative theatre process gives young people the opportunity to make new meanings from the material of their lives. There are no auditions – and it’s free to the young people who participate. CAT Youth Theatre is a program of the CUNY Creative Arts Team.
Why we’re raising money for CAT Youth Theatre
CAT Youth Theatre is a unique program, using theatre to encourage young people to look critically at the world around them, decide what it is they want their theatre to say, and think about what their role in the world should be. Young people ages 10 and up get amazing opportunities to create original theatre, work with a huge variety of people who they might never meet, and share their work with their families and peers. Youth Theatre members also get the opportunity to work with students in the Masters in Applied Theatre program, apprentice with the Junior Youth Theatre, and attend a weekend retreat in New Jersey to celebrate the end of the year.
Though CAT is fully committed to keeping the program free for participants, we need to raise funds to make that possible. I want to do my part to make sure that the program is available to NYC young people for years to come.
