CITA members develop the gifts and opportunities God has given them, to serve and create effectively.

CITA Secondary Festival LogoMany of CITA’s members are students and teachers. CITA has two programs that specifically serve high school students, the Secondary Theatre Festival and College Auditions, and we welcome the participation of Christian college theatre programs who wish to recruit students through those opportunities.

Other CITA members are lifelong learners – we know that we never stop growing as artists.

CITA recognizes that experiencing theatre, both as part of production and as an audience member, benefits learning and education. Theatre develops expressive, cognitive, and collaborative skills; increases empathy and compassion; and engages us as neighbors in conversations about relational, spiritual and social issues that affect us all and connect us with God and each other.
