Class Description

Be a part of 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, South-area students will work separately on a Shrek-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, be a part of our adventures with Shrek and Donkey and Let Your Freak Flag Fly!


Kaylee Gallagher

Kaylee earned her Bachelor’s degree in Drama, Television, and Film from Oral Roberts University. Kaylee grew up performing in CYT and Culture House and did a total of 19 shows between the two theater companies. While attending college, Kaylee became the theater director at a local church in Tulsa and was involved with many theater workshops and summer camps. Kaylee has experience teaching and directing summer and holiday kids programs in the Kansas City and Tulsa areas since she was 14 years old. Kaylee’s interesting fact is that she was diagnosed with a brain tumor at 3 years old. When the doctors removed the tumor, she was paralyzed completely on her right side. Three days later God healed her. She spent most of childhood in therapy and in speech to relearn how to walk and talk. Now she just limps but she is so thankful to be walking and using her right side!


Minnie Beechner

Minnie is an ELA and Social Studies teacher at Aubry Bend Middle School by day and a Supermom and CYT Teacher by night! But wait...there's more! She not only teaches improv, but has been known to perform on the World Famous improv team, The Argon Ship, with CYT KC's own Artistic Director, Gina Milbourn and fellow teacher, Jeff Yarnell. Minnie and her four boys have been involved with CYT for over a decade. We are thrilled to have her teach with us again!
