Lily Winde

Lily Winde has had seven years of acting experience in various theaters around the Inland Northwest. She loves all the aspects of theater arts but her real passion lies in storytelling. She loves to write and share morals through the power of stage play. Theater is a great way to teach people lessons about friendship and loyalty through simple stories like Toy Story and The Lion King. Every story has a heart and Lily is excited to share the heart of storytelling with every student she meets this coming year.


Jessica Belisle

Jessica Belisle has been the Artistic Director at CYT North Idaho for 1 year. Jessica is a CYT Spokane Alumna, her love for theater started when she was 8 years old and she saw her first CYT show (Sleeping Beauty)! Jessica studied History and Theater at Carroll College in Helena Montana, has been working with CYT since 2011 and has been on the artistic team for 15 CYT productions. Jessica firmly believes that through theater arts education a student can develop greater self awareness, empathy, discipline, teamwork, focus, passion, joy and confidence! Her goal is to cultivate an environment where every class, every production, every interaction, allows each student passing through CYT’s doors to feel, included, uplifted and inspired. Jessica is incredibly excited to be taking on such a delightful classic as Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dream Coat!
