Camp Description

CYT Youth Camp is Specially designed for students ages 11-18.  This Youth camp is based on the new hit dramedy Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist.  Zoey's is an American musical comedy-drama television series where main character Zoey Clarke, a computer programmer, discovers she has the ability to hear the innermost thoughts of people as songs.

Our CYT's Extraordinary Playlist camp will take new and old main stream songs and turn them into full out musical theater numbers.  This camp, written by our very own Artistic Director, will showcase a group of kids living their everyday lives while thier thoughts and emotions are expressed through musical numbers. This upbeat and fun camp is sure to be the best week of your life! Don’t miss out on this high energy week filled with CYT fun!

On The last day of camp, students will showcase skills they learned throughout the week for family and friends.  This year we will be recording it digitally and sending it out to our families via the e-mail address on your family account.

Jennie Smith

Jennie is so excited to be teaching again this session! She moved to Waco from College Station in June of 2016, and is a homeschooling mother of 4. She has been performing since she was 3, all the way through college, where she studied Vocal Performance at Oral Roberts University. As an adult, she sang with the Brazos Valley Chorale, taught music at a private school, along with teaching private vocal lessons. Her passion for finding and teaching harmonies comes from her many years of leading worship in church, in addition to her performing experience. Jennie has directed and choreographed various productions at church, and brought those talents to us at CYT Waco in the Spring of 2017, when she was the Vocal Director for Seussical Jr. Last season her Artistic Team contributions were as Vocal Director and Co-Choreographer for School House Rock Live, Choreographer for Into The Woods Jr., as well as Vocal Directing our Spring show, James and the Giant Peach. She substituted & assisted in the Fall & Winter sessions, & taught our musical theatre class, Tarzan, in the Spring. This past summer she served as a counselor during Trolls Camp and Vocal Directed our Greatest Show Camp, and went on a "High Adventure" teaching the Aladdin Musical Theatre class for this fall session. She is driven by her passion to for the kids to find their character & their voice.

Counselor:


Tara Hoover

Tara has just recently moved to Waco and is so excited to join the CYT family! She grew up in theatre around the East Texas & Dallas area. Serving in her community as actress, stage manager, assistant director, choreographer, director & Camp Coordinator for Tyler Civic Theatre & countless others. She has been awarded 2 distinctions from The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, Best Actress in OAP & doesn't count any of her talents for herself but for The Lord. Tara was a licensed actress for the Linicomn Agency for 3 years. This training was crucial, vulnerable & now very teachable in how the Film Industry is so different than Theatre & ways they both compliment each other. Her motto is "Theatre/Acting/The Industry is a raw & vulnerable craft... one that needs more of Jesus and less of ourselves. If I can help kids realize their potential, what God says about their gifts and how to go out and make disciples w/the talents they ALL possess? Then that's why I had all of the years of training, 50+ shows & countless 'Aha!' moments. Not for me, but to give back."
