December YP of the Month

The last month has been a hectic one, with one of our most intricate shows to date – The Three Musketeers – opening just last week.  Luckily, even during the most hectic of moments, we’ve got some pretty wonderful and relaxed kids working through it like pros.  One of our “calm-under-fire” kids is also our December Young Person of the Month!  He came to us only last year, but we’ve so enjoyed watching him play on our stages.  He usually plays villains, which is fun for us because he’s one of the nicest, kindest guys you’ll meet.  And who is this zen-inspiring, zany-making, Zorro-resembling zuperstar?

December’s YP of the Month is none other than,

Justin Little!!!

Justin made his CYPT debut in February of 2016 playing the Russian Officer in Village of Idiots, and then took the stage again as Will in Silence during the Cannonball Festival, or just recently he played the infamous Rochefort in The Three Musketeers!

After Justin finishes his grade 12 year at William Aberhart High School, he wants to go to the University of Alberta and take a Bachelor of Arts majoring in drama. When not acting, Justin is a big fan of hiking, camping, skiing, anything outdoors and photography. CYPT has made such a positive impact on Justin’s life and hopes to work with them for a little longer since this is his last year.
