How your donation helps

Ever wonder how much it costs to put on a play?
Hint: It’s a lot.

From props to set, costumes to programs, rehearsal space rental to the theatre itself, production costs add up quickly. Here at CYPT, we do our best to keep production costs down to ensure ticket prices and program fees remain as accessible as possible, but even the most thrifty show can cost many tens of thousands of dollars.

If you value the opportunity CYPT offers young people, we hope you will consider donating in person or online today!

CYPT is a CRA registered charity and provincially-incorporated not-for-profit society.  We fund our work through a combination of ticket sales, government grants, program fees, and individual donations.

Click below to donate to CYPT through Birdies for Kids and your donation will be matched by up to 50%! You can also donate through ATB Cares where your donation may be matched by up to 15%.
