This month, CYT Richmond HYPE students (High School Youth Pursuing Excellence) brought the first CYT Musical Theater Camp to 20 summer Youth Life students!
CYT students Rachel Boddy, Sarah Day, Abigail Price, Taylor Read and Josh Vranas traveled to the Youth Life center for two hours every afternoon for a week, teaching the K-5 students several songs and dances from the Broadway show, Seussical the Musical. The kids had a chance to audition for a part, wear costumes and makeup, and perform in a 20 minute showcase for friends and family onstage at North Run Baptist Church at the end of the week!
“It was joy to see these Youth Life students on the stage!” shared HYPE sponsor and CYT Artistic Director Brooke Abrahamsen. “I loved seeing these students blossom through musical theater training!”
HYPE has partnered with Youth Life for 4-5 years, bringing drama workshops each month, and plans to continue offering a summer program each year!
