This week Southwestern College featured CYT San Diego Alum Denyse Tontz in their newspaper, The Sun!
At 16, Denyse Tontz is a working model and recording artist- and has landed a role on Nickelodeon’s hit show, “Big Time Rush.” Here are selections from the article:
When she auditioned for “Big Time Rush” the day before her 15th birthday, she said had no idea just how big it would be. Tontz plays the role of one of the “Jennifers,” a trio of well-off and conceited girls sharing the same name. Reminiscent of “the plastics” from the motion picture “Mean Girls,” the Jennifers are a prominent obstacle the main characters have to face, berating them on a regular basis.
In addition to charity work, Tontz continues to contribute to local theatre. She helps do hair and make-up for CYT, where her younger sister still participates in productions. “We’re big CYT people,” she said.
All I can say is that she is very determined and passionate,” her mother said. “And I am sure her hard work will be rewarded soon. Denyse has very strong values and faith and I think that is what is going to get her to reach her dreams to become a great role model for society.”
