My name is Casey and I have been in eight shows at NEYT. It all started when I was nine. My mom said that there was an audition for The Blind King And The Sleeping Queen, and all I had to do was show up. I was hesitant, but ended up going anyway. I was so nervous that I shook. Later on I received the email with the cast list and I had been cast. This was the beginning of one of the best things that ever happened to me.
I think what makes NEYT special is that they give everyone a chance to shine. I got mine, and it spiraled into a whole lifestyle. I have made so many great friends and memories. NEYT has taught me to be courageous and bold and not make just myself look good but everyone around me as well. From years of learning at the theater I have discovered myself in a way that wouldn't have been possible otherwise.
