We are a nonprofit organization at The City University of New York that uses the power of drama to inspire youth to learn.


Do you love to act? Do you have something to say? Do you want to create your own plays? Join the CAT Youth Theatre!

Creative Arts Team (CAT) Youth Theatre is a free, award-winning after school program that helps young people to thrive– on stage and in life. Members create socially relevant, artistically sophisticated original plays while learning vital life skills enabling youth to become self-confident, compassionate and accountable; to develop relationships across differences; build community; and be prepared to act as contributing citizens.

Through interactive strategies and drama, Creative Arts Team (CAT) captures a panoramic view of our society and zooms in on specific issues and behaviors that create obstacles in our lives. These workshops encourage participants, in a safe environment through a co-intentional process, to carefully examine the choices, decisions and consequences of everyday challenges, to raise awareness, discover solutions and promote problem solving, decision-making, critical thinking and self-advocacy skills, and to build the confidence of every participant.


There Are No Auditions Required – Just A Commitment To Be An Active Participant Of The Cat Youth Theatre Community. No Previous Theater Experience Necessary. Missing More Than Three Sessions Will Results In The Member Forfeiting Their Position In The Company.
