February YP of the Month

We are only a few weeks away from our 2017 production of Macbeth, and we’re working our little noses off over here making something wicked for y’all.  It’s gonna be spooky.

In this production, our team has had the good pleasure of getting to know a young performer who is somewhat new to CYPT, but has greatly impressed us in both of the other shows he’s done here.  This young man is talented, funny, focused, and a real delight to have in the rehearsal hall.  In Macbeth he plays one of the many MacCharacters Shakespeare has written, but he plays the only one who has a hope of taking down Macbeth, so we were very delighted to see that this young actor has some pretty killer stage combat skills.   And who is this Macwonderful, Mactalented, and Mactastic performer of Macduff?

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

Kye Gillespie!!!

Kye is still relatively new to CYPT, but he’s incredibly excited to be receiving their young person of the month highlight. All of his previous performances include The War of the Worlds Project at CYPT, Silence with CYPT’s Cannonball festival, Twelfth Night with William Aberhart High School, Aberhart Summer with William Aberhart High school, and soon Macbeth with CYPT where he will be playing Macduff.

Outside of theatre you can find Kye either nose deep in a book, hanging with friends, or smashing his keyboard is frustration because gods darn it the computer isn’t working! Kye would like to give large thanks to all the people who have aided and encouraged him in becoming the young man and actor he is, including but not limited to all his friends and his family.

The greatest freedom in life is being underestimated.”
