Do you love those furry, four legged, frisky friends that we call Cats?! If you love cats then you are not alone. The musical theater world seems to be obsessed with them as well! Aristocats, Lion King, Jungle Book, Alice in Wonderland, Seussical, HONK, An American Tail, are all musicals that feature familiar felines! We will be celebrating all things Cat through singing, acting and dancing numbers from all of those musicals! Join us for a week of building confidence, developing friendships, and having a blast!
SHOWCASE IS FRIDAY AT 2:00

Presley DuPuis is a proud CYT graduate who flipped over to the grown-up side and hasn't looked back since North Idaho first staged production, Snow White, in 2008 (playing the Magic Mirror). He has gone from being the kid who would play the piano backstage that he wasn't allowed to touch, to a full-fledged accompanist. Over the past decade he has worn many different hats in various CYT leadership roles including teacher, music director, director, pit musician, HYPE adviser, and improv coach. Presley holds his Bachelor of Arts in Music from Eastern Washington University and serves as the resident music director for Aspire Community Theatre while also maintaining his own private music studio where he instructs in both voice and piano.
