SHREK will begin rehearsing on Monday, April 6 from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm and will rehearse Monday through Thursday from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm until tech week. Please note that the week of April 6 – 9 will only require the following characters: Shrek, Fiona, Donkey, Lord Farquaad and the Citizens of Duloc. A full rehearsal breakdown will be emailed next week once we finalize Spring Break schedules. You will not be called for every rehearsal and we will do our best to work around your conflicts. Do not add additional conflicts as we go. With a cast of nearly 60, we need everyone’s cooperation to help us run smoothly and efficiently.
A MANDATORY PARENT MEETING is schedule for Tuesday, April 14 at 7:00 PM. Make sure you have someone there for your student as a parental/guardian representative. This is our meeting to explain the performance process and the semester’s programming to everyone, talk about what we strive for, and to ask for your help as volunteers to help us be the best we can be. A relatively painless procedure but needs full cooperation to make the show a success!
Please make yourself very familiar with the music from the show in the next few weeks (the mp3s will be available via Dropbox early next week). Scripts and a full CD of our version will be available to be picked up the of March 9. Watch your email for pick-up details. In order to rent the fabulous costumes and provide each actor with their own script/score/CD/tracks, we ask a $20 donation per actor to help cover those costs. If the $20 is prohibitive for you, please let us know and we can make alternative arrangements.
The performance schedule is mapped out below.
Thursday, May 7, 7:30 PM ($5 Preview)
Friday, May 8 10:00 AM (Student Matinee) and 7:30 PM (Opening Night!) Saturday, May 9, 2:00 PM
Sunday, May 10, 2:00 PM
To accept the role offered or if you have questions about the production, please email email@example.com or text Brian at 216.374.3047.
If you are unhappy about your role or the casting, please contact me directly and let’s chat. I do not want to see it on facebook or twitter.
NOTE: This is our Junior Show and each actor is between the ages of 6 and 12. We have fun but we work hard. We need your full cooperation and attention at each rehearsal. If we find during the rehearsal process, that it just isn’t the best fit for you, the director (Brian) reserves the right to ask you to step out of the production.
Again congratulations and thank you for sharing your time and talent with us!

Caryl Crane Youth Theatre is pleased to announce it’s newest summer offering: Camp CCYT! Explore all aspects of the theatre with other aspiring actors who love the stage as much as you do! Camp CCYT is the arts camp that is more than a traditional summer camp. Designed for students ages 10-18, the program is a comprehensive, one-week intensive, in which students get a chance to hone their skills in a fast-paced, creative environment.
Camp CCYT meets July 20-24, 2015, 9am – 4 pm in the McBride Auditorium on BGSU Firelands College Campus. The 2015 Camp CCYT production is: Beauty and the Beast . One public performance of Beauty and the Beast is scheduled for Saturday, July 25 at 2 pm.
Each student will not only STAR onstage in the production, but also will also contribute to the direction, choreography, set, lighting and costume design of the production. Students will be assigned a mentor from the Caryl Crane Youth Theatre 2015 Staff and will work as assistants on a specific “behind-the-scenes” area of their interest.
Camp CCYT is designed to instill in aspiring thespians a deeper understanding about producing and participating in a first-class musical with working professionals. Tuition for Camp CCYT is $125.00 and space is limited to 30 students. All interested campers must audition for placement. The 2015 placement audition will take place on May 9, 2015.
