CYMC INSTRUCTORS Lindsay Sterk

A special concert featuring Lori Mazey, Ashley Daniel Foot, Lindsay Sterk and Kris Epps is scheduled for July 6 at 7:30 p.m. at the Stan Hagen Theatre.

As if putting together two full-length musicals in 10 days wasn’t enough, the CYMC Musical Theatre creative team of program director Foot, director Mazey, musical director Epps and director of dance Sterk will perform a concert of their own at the North Island College Courtenay Campus.

Fast becoming a summer tradition for CYMC, the musical theatre faculty concert is a chance for audiences to experience some of Canada’s finest performers and arts educators on a stage together. With over 55 years of combined teaching and performing expertise, the concert will feature iconic musical theatre songs such as Razzle Dazzle from Chicago, Unusual Way from Nine, Children Will Listen from Into the Woods and The Summer Knows by legendary European jazz composer Michel Legrand.

Sterk, the artistic director of the Valley’s own Pantuso School of Dance and a featured dancer in the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games opening ceremony, will sing and tap.

Foot, an award-winning tenor and Valley singing favourite, will debut a collection of glittering songs that showcase his unique voice.

“These are elegant, beautifully crafted songs that I have been saving for this moment,” says Foot.

Epps will handle the evening’s musical accompaniment and may even perform some instrumental selections with a mysterious special guest.

New to CYMC this year but not to Valley audiences is teacher, improv coach and award-winning director Mazey, who will sing a special selection from the hilarious 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

Also featured in the July 6 concert will be a a preview of CYMC Musical Theatre’s A Chorus Line (opening July 18 at the Sid WIlliams Theatre) and Glee Club (an original triple threat concert that will open July 25 at the Sid Williams Theatre).

Tickets to this special concert July 6 are $15 and are available at the Sid Williams Theatre box office by calling 250-338-2430, at the door, or by visiting www.SidWilliamsTheatre.com.

CYMC Musical Theatre is considered one of Canada’s leading summer youth musical theatre training programs. Three intense weeks of training are offered for young actors interested in pursuing theatre as a profession.

Mazey leads the creative team with a professional and dynamic approach to triple threat fundamentals. Students will concentrate on dance, vocal technique, stage presence and character creation to create their strongest performance ever in this year’s productions of A Chorus Line and CYMC Musical Theatre Glee Club.
