CYT SD’s Performance at the National Youth Theatre Awards

We posted a blog back in August, about students from CYT Chicago and CYT San Diego earning a total of eight 2010 National Youth Theater Awards!

The video above is a clip from the San Diego County Ceremony. Courtney Wolfe and the cast of CYT SD perform “It’s a Hard-Knock Life” from “Annie, Jr,” for which they won Outstanding Ensemble.

More video from NYT to come!

CYT At The San Diego Auto Show

Six CYT students from San Diego Central were asked to do an “unexpected” performance at the San Diego Auto Show.

The performance was to promote the new Lincoln MKT car. The advertising agency provided words and Taylor Peckham put those words to a commercial jingle, musical-theatre style. The performers were: Laura Hopkins, Paul Gilcrist, Danielle Slomka, Sarah De La Isla, Brittany Wolfe, and Courtney Wolfe. They put together what was to appear like a spontaneous burst-into-song performance at the San Diego Auto Show. A few people even asked if they were from the group Improv Everywhere….what a fun publicity stunt for CYT.

You can follow their story from behind the scenes to the final performance at the CYT Blog, or at this link. Also check out their rehearsal video & photos below!!
