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.
Ella's bio is coming soon. Stay posted.
Hi, my name is Jason. NEYT is the greatest place! I have been performing here since I was nine. I just can’t wait to start a new show. It is great to be with other young actors just like me. The first show I performed in was “Aladdin and the Magic Lamp”. I was a little nervous, but once the audience applauded, I new the theater was where I belonged. I have been in many other shows such as “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”, “Cinderella and the Ball Game”, “Jack and the Three Golden Hairs”, “Affair of the Arts”, “Picture Turned to the Wall”, “Quality of Mercy”, “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Hecuba”. I am now beginning voice and dance lessons to improve my technique. Out of all the different shows, my favorite is comedy because I like making people laugh.
NEYT is one of the most wonderful parts of my life. I have taken classes there for years, but started my serious relationship with the theater in 2009. I’ve been watching plays there as long as I can remember, and they have almost always taken my breath away. Being involved within NEYT is completely another thing. I have often found myself lost in this crazy world of school and everything else, but when I started at this theater I had a “family” I could turn too. The thing about NEYT is everyone there has a common interest and therefore something to talk about. Having so many people to talk to sparked my relationships with many of my current friends.
Hi, my name is Maeve, and NEYT is one of my personal favorite places to be. I have done three shows at the youth theater and loved them all; I couldn’t say what my favorite one was. I have been in Midsummer’s Pirates Dream, Emperor’s New Clothes, All about Alice, and am currently in Just So Stories. I have always loved acting ever since I was old enough to know what the word meant, and NEYT has made acting more of a possibility.
It was the year 2010, I was 9 years old. Sitting on NEYT's stage for the first time. My fellow TAP members were there with me behind the closed curtain. My feelings? Terror. When the curtain opened and I saw the audience with all those beady little eyes staring at us. I wanted to run off stage crying. Then Darlene was there supporting me to say my first lines. Working with my friends and classmates made me relax enough to enjoy the show. I wanted to try it again.
