CYTO 50th anniversary production 

Commissioned by CYTO from Richard Vincent, the production of ABI UNDERSTOOD will mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of CYTO. Directed by Richard Vincent and Viv Berry, performances are on Thursday - Sunday 3rd - 6th December. 


Abi Undersmith's Dad has gone.  He said he wanted to see the show she's in. He said he would come but time is running out. The show is on next week and he still hasn't collected his tickets.  So Abi sets off on a quest to find her Dad, a quest of truth and discovery, a quest that will eventually break her heart .... and mend it.

There are still some small parts to be cast and some places in the 'chorus' for actors/dancers/singers aged 13 - 21: Please call 020 8655 1098 or email [email protected] if you would like to be considered. 

Details of times and ticket arrangements will be posted shortly. 





Film-making project

             Film-making project

Telling the world about what a great place CYTO is will really help us grow and develop so lots more young people can come here in the future. What better way to tell our story than through film and by the current members of CYTO?

Can you help tell this story by being involved in making a short film that will look back and forward at how so many young people have benefited from being members of CYTO? This is a great opportunity to learn about making a short documentary style film with a professional film-maker and to help CYTO.

  Jesse Quiones is a film-maker who has worked with lots of different young people to make short films and tell their story. He will be our workshop leader for this project

The workshops will cover researching the subject, vocabulary of film-making from concept, idea development, research, location, interview skills, storyboard, camera, sound and hands on team work in storytelling, locations and interviewing.

The project is happening over two days:

Saturday 17th October 10.00am - 4.00pm

Friday 30th October 10.00am - 4.00pm

Please do let us know which one you would like to take part in by emailing [email protected] or call the office on 020 8655 1098020 8655 1098  to sign up!
