Last week CYT Indianapolis opened its doors to 250 kids for their first summer camp, Willy Wonka. The IndyStar.com interviewed Artistic Director, Lori Rigdon:
“‘Willy Wonka was meant to be a fundraiser, For example, the costumes are a combination of donations from Creekside Middle School in Carmel, creations by the cast, purchases from Goodwill and various pieces and parts that CYT had left over from other shows. The rented set will include a Chocolate Mountain, a Pink Candy Boat and a Nut-O-Meter, as well as many other pieces that will wow the audience,’ Rigdon said. ‘Many of the props have been donated or handmade by members of the cast.’
Rigdon [also] said CYT directors from around the nation ‘are surprised at how many students we had for our first season and our first year of camps.'”
Willy Wonka runs weekly, through July 23. Read the complete article, here.
