Ben Olson

I have taught and directed for CYT Chicago since the Winter of 2009. I have a B.A. in Youth Ministry/Adolescent Studies and a Minor in Music from Judson University in Elgin, IL. I absolutely love CYT and its mission of bridging together the performing arts and the love of Christ! My teaching credits include many improv/comedy classes, including the coach for the 2014 Improvapalooza Champions Aurora team. I also teach drama classes ranging from beginner to advanced scene study, and some voice & musical theater as well. In the summer of 2019, I began teaching for the brand new Paramount School Of The Arts in Aurora! My lead directing credits include The Wizard of Oz, Great American Tall Tales, Grimm Fairy Tales, Oliver!, You're A Good Man Charlie Brown, Hairspray, The Music Man, Fiddler on the Roof, R&H Revival Cinderella , James & The Giant Peach, The Music Man, and Annie. I am so excited to work & play together in telling great stories and creating vibrant characters.
