What a wonderful performance by the Towle Youth Theater Ensemble (TYTE)!!! I could not have been more proud of them during this photography shoot. Everyone was superb. Great acting, and I have to say a profound outcome of good directing.
From my vantage point, with the cast of 20 of our youth, and multiple roles played by 3 of them, this seamless performance was a real joy. Everyone hit their marks with enthusiasm, intent, and so heart felt that you felt you could be at a Broadway show.
Hats off to the cast and all who supported them. Especially Jeff Casey the director. I assure you the cast made him proud. A list of everyone's names is at the end of the blog. Enjoy the photographs!
I have to say, I enjoyed Julia playing the part of Heather Chandler. She was strong, as the part required. This particular scene was meant to be a little over the top, and she played it perfectly.
Cali played the part of Martha Dunnstock. Her character was low key, written into the musical here and there. Her performance as an actor was the best I have seen. She nailed the role, and her voice was so wonderful to listen to. Bravo Cali! (Hence why there are so many photos in this series.)
