Students will be assigned a mentor from the Caryl Crane Youth Theatre 2015 Staff and will work as assistants on a specific “behind-the-scenes” area of their interest.

Camp CCYT is designed to instill in aspiring thespians a deeper understanding about producing and participating in a first-class musical with working professionals. Tuition for Camp CCYT is $125.00 and space is limited to 30 students. All interested campers must audition for placement. The 2015 placement audition will take place on May 9, 2015.
