How we work

CYO is a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) managed by a board of trustees. There is more about how we function as a charity under Governance.

Our core team of artistic and educational professionals provide coaching during productions as well as driving the artistic direction and strategy of all our activities.

Our day to day activities are run by a voluntary committee who are responsible for the administration of all activities, as well as planning and fundraising for our productions and other activities.

In addition we engage other professionals to bring specific expertise where needed, for example, dance choreography or elements of technical theatre.

We also involve past performers and members of the production team as mentors, working with young participants to increase their confidence and skill.
