THE STORY:

Fleance's Story

CYS was the first real acting I did, well technically it was the 8th grade play, and since then I've been involved in a number of student films and independent film productions. I'm also going on to study filmmaking in college. I believe Shakespeare is the foundation of all modern theater (or perhaps it's Ancient Greek theater) whether it be on stage or on screen. I know from experience that training in Shakespearian theater is the most solid foundation any actor could have; go ahead, try to communicate to your audience what you want/are presently doing while they don't understand a word you're saying.

I'm not one for sports and I'm not quite sold on the illusion of nationalism so CYS was pretty much my first feeling of being on a team; being part of something bigger. I also recall the point at which I realized this was something I'd rather do than even *gasp* partying! I've found that art is born from love and hard work and CYS is certainly an example of this, probably the best one. I'm at a place in my life where I really love who I am and where I'm going and I know I wouldn’t be here if it hadn't been for CYS.
