Caryl Crane Youth Theatre is excited to offer SHOWCASE 2018, a musical theatre boot camp beginning February 26. SHOWCASE provides students with demanding material, and seeks to challenge them as artists, educate them in a professional setting, and increase their confidence as they learn to trust their instincts.

In SHOWCASE, students tear apart and explore musical scenes and numbers from the works of some of musical theatre’s greatest composers, lyricists, and book writing teams. Develop acting and singing chops with songs and scenes from My Fair Lady to Cats to Dear Evan Hansen.

The material worked on during SHOWCASE will be presented as part of a unique musical revue March 23 and 24 at BGSU Firelands College. All participating SHOWCASE students are invited to perform.

SHOWCASE meets Monday-Tuesday, February 26 - March 13, and Tuesday-Thursday March 20-22 from 5:00 pm -7:00 pm for ages 10-13, and 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm for ages 14-18 in the McBride Auditorium.

"Set the Stage!" is Caryl Crane Youth Theatre’s new educational outreach program designed to offer children from the surrounding school districts the opportunity to see their first live theatrical show at no cost. The experience, which includes admission to an unabridged performance of each show in the 3CT 2012-2013 season, as well as educational and artistic interaction opportunities, will provide the initial theatre exposure a child needs to foster an interest and passion in the theatre arts for life.

Launched in January 2012, “Set the Stage” offers children (12 and under) and their parents, who may be faced with economic hardship, free admission to each production in CCYT's current season. All applications must be received in writing and will be reviewed and awarded on a first-come basis, and in consideration of qualifying income levels. Each show of our current season will participate in one non-public performance for the “Set the Stage” program and will consist of study guide materials, a pre-show interactive workshop with the various designers, an unabridged performance and a post-show discussion with the actors and director. Please contact 419.372.0642 if you would like to learn more, or be on the organizing end of the program.
