Bigger Every Year

The CCYA and its volunteers organize this annual event to celebrate the lives and achievements of the youth and young adults who live on their Marietta campus. This celebratory show has grown from a small dinner event into an entertaining and heart-warming grand production over the past five years. Next Friday’s show will be bigger than last year so make plans now.

This year will be different than previous events as this unique and fun evening will be all about delivering entertainment.  It will be filled with more music, dancing, and many other artistic performances featuring the CCYA youth performers as they showcase their interest and talents, live on stage at the lovely and historic Strand Theatre on the Square. Come out and support the CCYA performers and remind them that “The Best is Yet to Come.”
