September YP of the Month
If you’ve been on Instagram lately, you may have noticed the hijinks our Wolves cast has been up to on the soccer field. Sportsing is hard and theatre kids learning to sports is entertaining to say the least (that sounded natural, right?). But, of course, we are always entertained by these young people, and one of those young people is also our YP of the Month.
This young woman makes our heart sparkle. Truly, I can’t think of a better way to put it. She’s been killing it on our stages for years, often in comedic roles where she just nails the “sidekick” roles.. maybe that’s what makes her so prepared for the Wolves! GET IT? SideKICK?? Cause soccer is kicking?
…wait, it IS kicking right? Ho boy, sportsing is hard to do.
Ahem. A few months ago, she demonstrated just how sharp her brain really is in our Cannonball presentation of Unpaid Programming, a completely improvised reality show. Watching her just destroy an audience with her wit and her insanely smart character choices was a true spectacle, a professional caliber performance if I’ve ever seen one. Plus we love her. We say that a lot, but it’s true. We love her. She’s kind and funny and smart and we love her. And who is this sensationally skilled, smart, smiley, and SPORTSY star of of our soccer stage?
Through these shows Thea has not only grown as a performer, but as a person. She’s also met some of her best friends in the universe thats she’s confidant she will stay close to for life. Thea often says that CYPT has healed her in a lot of ways and that discovering the company was easily the best thing to have happened to her in the past few years. Thea feels incredibly lucky and overwhelmingly grateful for all the opportunities CYPT has given her. It has become her home away from home, with Jamie and Kristen being her second moms.
When not doing theatre you can catch her watching Full House, chugging coffee, pretending to study, and cuddling her wonderful cats, bearded dragon, and frogs. Or, occasionally doing all of the above at the same time. Her future aspirations include getting a PhD in entomology, traveling the world, and buying herself a yacht made of solid gold. Some things you may not know about her include the facts that she speaks American Sign Language,
is left handed, and her favourite food is plain white rice.
“There is no feeling more exhilarating than the endorphin rush of opening night”
