CITA’s network tells embodied stories that express humanity’s deepest longings, conflicts, and joys.

We recognize the calling of God in our lives to write, perform in, direct, design, and produce works of live theatre.

Is CITA about “Christian theatre”? As our founding Executive Director, Dale Savidge, wrote, “‘Christian’ is a noun, not an adjective.” CITA is made up of Christians who are in theatre arts, whether we work in schools, local theatres, churches or elsewhere; and whether our work is specifically faith-centered or not.

The Happening is CITA’s annual event to encourage creation of new theatrical works, cultivation of emerging artists, and creative engagement with communities.

CITA has also encouraged the creation of new plays through our New Works Initiative. Watch their Facebook page and sign up for emails to get more information.
