"She said if you work hard to get where you are, It feels good in the hot Spot light...."

Another activity for this spring is CYT… CYT stands for Christian Youth Theater. It isn’t very new to us, as we have been going and seeing the plays for years and our good friends and neighbors have been participating in it. AJ and I are really looking forward to being in the play, which is going to be The Wizard of Oz, for Spring 09.

To explain more, CYT is a program that is all over the Country, which has a play every season (except summer) which all the cast and crew are kids ages 8-18. We have gone to see a few shows, including Annie, Oliver, Snow White, You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, and The Jungle Book. We can’t wait to be apart of the cast for The Wizard of Oz!

To be apart of a CYT play, you need to Audition, with a song. We’ve had a bit of trouble deciding our songs, but after I don’t know, five changes? We have finally decided to have AJ sing I Just can’t Wait to be King from The Lion King, and me to sing Good Morning Baltimore from Hairspray.

Mom and Jordan have been a great help for Choreography, and it’s been really fun! A bit hard, (I am not a dancer) but after a bit AJ and I are getting the hang of it. We're still working ont he words, but we've been singing them all over the place, around the house, outside, in the shower :P

We can't wait to be apart of this all, and we'll keep you up to date On everything. Auditions are on the twenty-seventh, so we have a ways to go. When we audition we have to wait a week or so to see what we are going to be... This being our first play we're just going for the chorus. So I’ll ptyl (I like that!) and HAPPY ST. PATTY’S DAY!!!!
