Class Description

Come one! Come all! Be a part of The Greatest Show and a new kind CYT performance! We have created a mashup of our classes, camps, and Black Box to create something new! In lieu of multiple showcase performances, east fall students will work separately on a Greatest Showman-inspired production that they will perform together. Age ranges and times will stay exactly the same as our normal class structure but students will be taught different pieces of the puzzle. Students will learn to develop characters when a script doesn't give specific directions. We will learn musical numbers from the show and work on acting through song. Come with us and Rewrite the Stars...
