CYT Chicago: Kane Presents...

Prepare ye for this timeless tale of friendship, loyalty, and love based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew. Join Jesus and his disciples as they tell parables through a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs ranging in style from pop to vaudeville is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' message of kindness, forgiveness, and love come vibrantly to life.

Kane have blown me away once again!!!  To all who auditioned for Godspell, you truly brought it this weekend!  Thank you so much for all the hard work and energy you put into your singing audition, the dance audition, and for many of you, the callbacks as well. Casting is always a giant puzzle but the versatility you all brought to this weekend made for an extra challenge.  Still, watching you all perform on that little stage only makes us even MORE excited for what is to come! We are super thrilled to begin this journey with all of you and we are so happy to finally get started!!!
Please remember the casting process is often accompanied by great joy and excitement, as well as frustration, disappointment, and even a little heartbreak.  We all understand what it feels like to be disappointed; we understand what it feels like to not be cast in the role we had hoped for.  Each of us has been there, multiple times.  And please know this… it is ok to be sad. We are sad too.  Our hope and prayer is that you recover quickly and can be happy for those who are happy.  If you are one of those who are excited, GREAT!!!  We’re excited too!  We hope and pray that your excitement grows and becomes contagious to those around you throughout this entire show process!!!
OK, now to the nitty-gritty stuff.  Here is a list of things you should bring to EVERY rehearsal:
-Water bottle
-Money for snacks
-Shoes for dancing (Bare feet are not allowed with CYT, and don’t you even THINK about wearing flip flops!  Yes, I know we are just barely leaving Winter…but you would be surprised.)
-MODEST, comfortable, and appropriate clothing for dancing and general movement
-Your script and/or music
-PENCIL PENCIL PENCIL!!! (Don’t expect to remember everything if you don’t write it down…just FYI, Kristi is a STICKLER about this…)
-A recording device (if you have one…the Voice Memo app is perfect!)
-A great, respectful, Christ-honoring, praise-filled, and God-glorifying attitude!
Also, please remember the ol’ theatre saying… “10 minutes before is early, 5 minutes before is on time, and on time is LATE!!!”…get there early please J
Ok now, times to get excited…get ready for a show that many of us have been waiting for for a long time!!!…We are just so excited to begin working on this great musical and hope you are too! #Comesingaboutlove
See you soon!
-Kristi, Regan, Adam, Amanda and Emma
