Rebellion is nigh in Matilda Jr., a gleefully witty ode to the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This story of a girl, who dreams of a better life, and the children she inspires, will have audiences rooting for the "revolting children" who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson. This musical theater show in a weeks intensive will be a wild ride as we tackle this musical theater classic in only 1 week!

Along with her dance training she also has an AA in Music from North Idaho College.

She is extremely excited to be teaching for CYT this session and to be able to be part of a new generation of CYT students as they experience the program.
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. He can always be found playing, teaching, and collaborating with local community theatres, schools, universities, and choirs.
