On Growing Up In The Theatre

On Growing Up In The Theatre

Today's guest post comes from a recent Youth Program alumni, Kyla Whetham. Kyla is currently in her first year of studying Drama and Women and Gender Studies at University of Toronto. She is a 12 year alumni of Wavestage's triple threat youth programs. Over her many years with Wavestage, she's performed in everything from ensemble roles to featured dance roles to leads. Kyla has been an assistant counsellor for Showbiz Academy and has spent countless hours behind the scenes painting sets, learning sound operation skills, and more. 

Read her take on why growing up in the theatre played an instrumental role in developing the person she is today.
