It's a timeless tale of magic and music. It's a treat for the whole family. It's Mary Poppins as presented by the amazing cast of Acadiana's own Christian Youth Theater.

Many of us have seen the movie starring Julie Andrews as a magical nanny who sails in on her magic umbrella to bring some magic and sunshine into the lives of her new family.


Performances begin Thursday May 14th at Angelle Hall on the campus of UL. Ticket prices range from $12 for students, children, and senior citizens to $16 dollars at the door.

If you're not familiar with CYT, Christian Youth Theater of Lafayette, let me offer this personal testimony. My daughter has been involved with this group for many years and it has truly been a blessing in our lives. Not only has Anna ,my child, grown in her confidence on stage she has also grown in her faith. She has met a great group of lifelong friends. It is a joy to see the way these kids lift each other up and help each performer become stronger and more confident in themselves

CYT is not just another children's theater group. The sets are amazing, the music is incredible and the talent on stage will rival that of any good regional theater company. It's hard to believe the performers that you are marveling at are still kids.

I would also encourage parents to look into CYT camps and classes for the Summer. If you have a child that loves to sing, dance, or act, this is a group you will cherish being a part of. There is a part for everyone and every part is an important one. If great life lessons and lessons in kindness and faith are what you believe your child should be learning. I hope you will attend this CYT performance for a taste of something incredible.
