GET INTO THE ACT!

WHO WE ARE
The Point Theater (formerly CYT) Indianapolis is a non-profit 501(c)3 educational organization prioritizing building character and creating a safe, happy place for its students. Audience members come to see children's theater but leave seeing a professional level performance that's unlike anything else offered in the area.

MISSION STATEMENT

The Point Theater encourages excellence in the theatrical arts, fostering character and community building for everyone through training and performance in a faith-based environment.

STATEMENT OF INCLUSION

The Point Theater does not and shall not discriminate. This includes, but is not limited to, discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and educational offerings. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, students and their families, volunteers, contractors, and vendors.

Hate speech--any form of communication that attacks, threatens, degrades or insults a person or group based on their race, color, national origin, ancestry, creed, age, gender, disability, sexual orientation or gender variance--has a harmful impact on our community and will not be tolerated.

The safety of The Point students, staff, and community is our highest priority, and we have several protocols in place to ensure this safety. Our staff and contractors are instructed to report every incident/suspicion, no matter how minor it may be.

The Point Theater is constantly exploring, evaluating and strengthening our protocols, and we will continue to work tirelessly to protect our students and families against harassment and discrimination.
