Coquitlam Youth Theatre!

What is Coquitlam Youth Theatre?

Place des Arts’ Coquitlam Youth Theatre (CYT) is a by-audition, performance-based training company made up of emerging theatre artists between the ages of 10 and 17.

Company members hone their skills in dance and movement, voice and vocal techniques, acting and character development while rehearsing for public performances presented in January and June. Company members learn from experienced professionals, collaborate with peers in the community and are a part of an ensemble of young performing artists with the goal of creating great theatre.
