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’s Secondary Theatre Festival serves high school students and their instructors, and we invite Christian college theatre programs to recruit students during the weekend as well.

Save the date! Our next Secondary Theatre Festival will be January 31-February 2, 2019. We are excited to again be the guests of Carmel Christian School in Charlotte, NC.

Other CITA members are lifelong learners – we know that we never stop growing as artists. The Happening is our annual event bringing advanced learning opportunities toexperienced theatre 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.
