CYT Indianapolis is partnering with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, for their current production of “Tom Sawyer!”
An article featuring CYT Indy ran this week at Indystar.com. According to the article,
“The Big Brothers Big Sisters mentorship program will benefit from the Christian Youth Theater’s production of ‘Tom Sawyer,’ thanks to a community partnership program the theater started in 2010….It’s the second community-based partnership in the theater’s new Bringing Art to Life program, which teams with local nonprofits to encourage community service.”
Artistic Director Mandy Polster told the newspaper,
“Thematically driven community service has a deeper educational impact….Big Brothers Big Sisters is devoted to helping boys and girls grow into the next generation of caring, confident and competent adults. CYT wants to impress upon our students that being in the spotlight, while fun and rewarding, is not the ultimate goal. We are called to love and serve one another.”
In addition to the show productions, CYT Indianapolis will host theater workshop at the Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Downtown facility on Feb. 20. Dance, song and improv workshops will be offered.
