Event Press Release
2012 Improvathon, HYPE, CYT’s Got Talent, Leadership Council,
and Leadership Workshops
Christian Youth Theater is presenting the 2012 CYT Expo in San Diego, California this June 27th- June 30th, 2012.
CYTs from across the nation will come together to attend exciting new workshops, review trends, plan for the future, and fellowship with those who have the same “Vision, Mission and Purpose.”
“This year we’re focusing on uniting our vision in order to work efficiently together. We’re recognizing that we all have individual and organizational strengths so we’re calling out to every student and leader to ‘BE A PART OF THE CREW.’ Utilizing each others’ skills will allow for an outrageously innovative and effective next chapter for CYT,” said Founder Paul Russell. “‘THE CREW’ is the heartbeat of CYT. This conference will not only educate you, but prepare you to spread the message of CYT back home.”
Student activities include the 2012 Improvathon, HYPE, and CYT’s Got Talent!
Improv Teams from all over the country will compete in a hilarious two-day think-on-your-feet event. The Improvathon culminates in a finals round where the wittiest CYT area will take home the coveted Improv Trophy. For HYPE students, we’ve extended this year’s activities into two separate events. Student Leaders who are not competing in the Improvathon will spend Thursday and Friday working together on a project. They will learn principles of servant leadership and project management. Saturday’s HYPE workshops will allow ALL students to come together. In addition to Improvathon and HYPE, we’ve brought back CYT’s Got Talent – a radical talent showcase for the CYT Community, and it’s inclusive of all ages. Acts should be singing, dancing, or something physically amusing.
The EXPO will offer Breakout Sessions, Discussion Panels, and Training Sessions for CYT Leaders and Staff. The Leadership Council will also round-table to discuss trends and strategic plans for tomorrow’s CYT.
