The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

The Herdmans never go to church. So how did they end up with the lead roles in the Christmas play?  Chance, intimidation, and maybe a little Christmas magic help bring the Herdmans, as well as the rest of the town, to a new understanding of the holiday season. Don’t miss this Clark Youth Theatre tradition, 38 years strong!

Performances: November 30-December 3, December 7-10, 2017



 The Crucible 

In the rigid theocracy of Salem, Massachusetts, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town. In a searing portrait of a community engulfed by panic – with ruthless prosecutors, and neighbors eager to testify against neighbor – The Crucible famously mirrors the anti-Communist hysteria that held the United States in its grip in the 1950’s. A Tony Award Winner for Best Play.

Performances: February 2-4, 9-11, 2018

The Cinderella Complex

Cinderella is a compulsive martyr who’d love to have the whole world weep and say: “Poor Cinderella,” as she spoils life for her family. Her stepmother buys her a Paris gown for the ball, her stepsisters line her up an intriguing date – but Cinderella prefers to suffer. A wise, witty take on this classic story.

***Information About Clark Youth Theatre’s Rating System***

Clark Youth Theatre serves students ages 8-18. The 2016-17 season will have expanded programming to suit the varying needs of our students as they age through our program. We have created the CYT Rating System in order to provide our parents, guardians and patrons with as much information as possible about the content of plays. Ultimately, opinions about the appropriateness of content is subjective and is likely to vary from person to person. 

The rating system is structured in two tiers: age ratings (A, T, OT) and content indicators (language, violence and themes). Age ratings indicate a maturity threshold below which some parents or guardians may find the content unsuitable.

Content indicators provide insight as to the material within the play that prompted a particular age rating. If the play contains language (L), violence (V), or themes (S) that a parent may deem unsuitable, the rating notes for each production will provide details.


ALL AGES (A) = material has been deemed unlikely to be found inappropriate by any particular age group.

TEEN (T) = content within play may be considered inappropriate by some parents or guardians for children under the age of 13.

OLDER TEEN (OT) = contains material some parents or guardians may consider inappropriate for children under the age of 16.
