School of Performing Arts Student Showcases 2016-2017
At PYT, we believe it is vital for students to share their work in both formal and informal settings. From well-rehearsed dances to short, devised scenes, students sharing their art help round their performing arts education, as well as give them much-needed experience in front of an audience.
PYT Mainstage Productions
These fully-staged, professional productions set PYT apart from other performing arts schools. They feature professional adult actors, as well as children and young people, who perform for school and family audiences throughout the year. Participation is voluntary. Students must be at least 6 years old and enrolled in full-year PYT classes in either the Dance or Drama Division in order to audition for roles.
This unique performance is a celebration of our Drama Division’s Fundamentals and Junior Conservatory classes. In an effort to give our drama students a more dramatic performance opportunity, we have moved PYT Performs! to a smaller, more intimate setting. It provides more opportunities for the individual actor to be showcased through scenes, monologues and/or stories, in addition to whole class pieces.
This year’s performances will be held at the Historic Charles A. Brown Ice House during the week of April 3rd through April 7th. Your son/daughter’s class will perform on the night/day of their already scheduled drama class.
PYT’s private and semi-private voice students will be sharing a variety of material from the musical canon in our Spring Voice Concert.
The Spring Voice Concert performance is April 8th at 7:00 PM, location at the Historic Charles A. Brown Ice House
This energetic showcase of PYT’s most advanced students allows them the opportunity to share their acting, dancing and singing talents through a variety of material. Choreographed and directed by PYT staff, as well as material created by our students, Senior Cabaret is an amazing night of performing. All of our students at PYT are invited to this wonderful event.
Join us at the Ice House in Bethlehem, February 24th & 25th at 7:00 PM for an evening of impressive performances.
