How to join

If you think you would like to join - take a look on this website and decide which workshop or activity you like the look of, then give CYTO a call (020 8655 1098) or send us an email (admin@cyto.org.uk) saying you would like to join. Please give us your name, your age at present, the area where you live and, if possible, a telephone number (yours or your parent's or carer's) or, preferably, an email address and tell us why you want to join CYTO.

When you do come for the first time, the workshop visit is free of charge! If your first visit is for an audition for a show and you become a member of the cast or crew, you will be asked to pay the membership fee next time you come. There is no audition for workshops but we will ask you what involvement you've had so far in theatre (performing or backstage).


If you decide to become a member there is a membership fee of £30 per term. People joining after a half term holiday are asked for £15. Special arrangements can be made if the lump sums are difficult. Membership must be paid by the end of the third week of term, unless another date has been agreed with the staff. There are, usually, auditions for shows. Cast members must be up-to-date with their subs. Membership is open to young people between the ages of 13 and 22.
