As one of Yes! And... Collaborative Arts’ largest and most successful programs, the goal of Winter Sort of Thing (WSOT) is to use the process of creating and producing a full length musical as a way to challenge, stretch, and teach young people the value of hard work as well as collaborative and creative thinking.
YACA believes that as important as building skills from voice projection to self confidence, one of the most important gifts we can give the young cast is experience. Collaborating with a large and diverse group of people including adult professionals, working on a professional stage, and performing (and performing well) in front of over a thousand people over the course of the program are the sorts of experiences that expand a child's vision and faith in their own capacity, fulfilling our overall mission!
More information coming soon!
For this year's Winter Sort of Thing, we are creating a multi-medium video piece called Be Careful What You Wish For. It’s ambitious, and we are going to learn a lot along the way, but that is always the case with Winter Sort of Thing! Through this process, we are going to be able to teach new skills that the cast would not otherwise have had the opportunity to explore. We will primarily meet virtually via Zoom, but hope to have some small-group in-person rehearsals if it is safe to do so!
