What is CharacterWorks?
CharacterWorks is a non-profit 501(c)3 after-school youth theater program offering classes, camps and productions for students age 4-19 years old. CharacterWorks started in Richmond in 2001 as an affiliate of Christian Youth Theater (CYT, Inc in San Diego, CA), and became an independent youth theater company in July 2013.
CharacterWorks is based around three foundational programs: theatre arts classes, Broadway-style shows, and musical theatre summer camps. The purpose of all of these programs is to educate and encourage children’s gifts and talents in the arts, and to instill in them Christian values and an awareness of their relationship with God.
