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.
