GENERAL FAQs

 
  • Why did CYT NYC change to Truthbase Theatricals?

CYT Inc. has recently changed their mission statement.  We would like to keep the focus of our organization on the historic stated mission, so we will now operate independently under a new name.

  • What is TbT's Mission Statement?

Truthbase Theatricals is committed to building values-driven character through quality training in the arts, and producing wholesome entertainment that promotes a Scriptural worldview.

  • Was everyone on the Board in agreement regarding this decision?

Yes, there was 100% unanimity among the Board and Staff about this decision.

  • Will programming and prices remain the same?

There should be no significant differences as a result of this name change. You can expect more of the excellent programming you have come to expect from us to continue, but under a different name. In fact, we are actually expanding our program offerings in the coming year – it’s an exciting time to be a part of TbT!

  • Who is TbT accountable to?

Truthbase Theatricals Inc. is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with its own governing Board, which will not change.

  • What financial resources were you receiving from CYT Inc. that will need to be found elsewhere?

None. We paid a licensing fee to CYT, Inc. under a term license agreement. We did not receive any funds from CYT Headquarters. The only practical change will be a new website, domain and hosting.
