The CYT Spotlight

What's the Buzz at CYT Indy?

CLASS BUZZ

Spring Classes are LIVE!

The Early Bird really does get the worm. Sign up for CYT Spring Classes before February 15th and get $15 off registration!

We have some exciting new class offerings for the seasoned CYTer ready for a new challenge!

  • And...Scene - Directing for the Stage - Have you ever wanted to be in the Director's Chair? This is a great opportunity to learn the ins and outs of what it takes to make a show come alive...from start to finish!
  • Drama 2 - Accents & Dialects - What do Eliza Dolittle, and Sebastian the crab have in common? They aren't from Indiana! Have you ever wanted to master the art of speaking like someone else? If you are ready to dive in and explore the bigger wider world of speech to expand your stage potential, then this is the class for you!
  • Auditions Callbacks 2 - Mastering Cold Reading/Singing/Dancing - Let's face it. Auditions can be scary. Perhaps the scariest part is having to read a scene on the spot or learn a piece of music or dance from the show in 5 minutes flat. But preparation is the key to doing your very best. If you want to master the art of the cold read & sing & dance at callbacks, then sign up to get the boost of confidence that you will need at your next audition!

Bring 3 and Take Class Free!

In honor of CYT Indy doing 3 shows this Spring, we want to extend a special offer to you! If you can get 3 friends to enroll for Spring classes (who are brand new to CYT), we will let you take class for free.

Just send the names of your recruits to lsiefker@cytindy.org and she will credit your account once their registration is verified.

It's easy! Bring 3 and get your class free!

Into The Woods/Beauty & The Beast (combined auditions) - March 13, 14, 16 (Callbacks)

CAMP BUZZ

ANNOUNCING CYT SUMMER FUN!!!!

Don't sit inside all summer! Brush up on your theater skills and have a BLAST with your friends at CYT summer camp!! We have camps for all skill levels and all ages!

2 Week Teen Intensive Camp - Godspell In Concert!!

This intensive workshop is by audition only! This best loved musical by three-time Academy Award-winner Stephen Schwartz has been specially adapted for use at a camp. Godspell is a groundbreaking and unique retelling of the gospel of Matthew. It shows a reflection of the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, Grace and love. Godspell features a string of recognizable songs, including the international hit "Day By Day." Join us and be transformed as we bring this amazing music to life, telling the most important story of all. This camp is for teens ages 12-18. Space is VERY limited. If cast, campers will experience an intense 2 weeks of choreography, vocal training, and drama instruction as they prepare to perform "Godspell: The Musical" as their showcase.

CYT GIVING BACK

Painting With The Pride - Art for Anti-Bullying

Our Pridelands cast and HYPE will be teaming up with the Bullying Prevention Alliance to make their new building kid friendly for all of the students who will come through their doors. Pridelands cast members will submit designs for an anti-bullying themed mural that the volunteers will use to paint the walls of the building on February 27th.

HYPE students will also be participating in the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the new building on March 4th, 2013 at 6:00.

At CYT, we work hard to build an environment that is inclusive and safe for all students. That's why we will be continuing our partnership with Bullying Prevention Alliance of Indianapolis to train our HYPE and CYT leaders. We will continue to give them support by offering service from HYPE and student leaders from CYT to ensure that we are helping them achieve their goals to keep schools in Central Indiana bully free.

HYPE Concert for Seniors

HYPE is still looking for any CYT students who would be interested in coming up with a 3 minute act to perform for the senior citizens at Sunrise Senior Living on Saturday, February 23rd 1:00. The performance will be at 1:30 and HYPE students will be scheduling a rehearsal to run all acts prior to the show. Since this performance is scheduled during Pridelands rehearsal, we will need students to sign up who are NOT currently rehearsing for Pridelands.

This is a GREAT opportunity to not only get to sing a favorite song or perform a favorite monologue or dance...it's a great way to give back to seniors who may not be able to get out to attend a show.

If you are interested, take a moment to sign up and HYPE members will follow up with more details!

Thanks to our 2013 Sponsor - St. Vincent Health - for their generous contribution to CYT!
