Musical Theatre Company hires new Director and Choreographer

MTYP’s Musical Theatre Company has a new Director and Choreographer this year! We welcome Erin McGrath in the role of Director and Joseph Sevillo who joins the team as Choreographer. MTYP looks forward to this dynamic duo sharing their experience as theatre artists and mentors with Musical Theatre Company participants. Erin has performed in regional theatres across the country in shows such as Ubuntu (Citadel/PTE), Seussical, My Fair Lady (WCT), Fiddler on the Roof (Chemainus) and Sunday In The Park With George (Gallery Works). She will also be directing Spelling 2-5-5 for MTYP this season. Joseph Sevillo most recently appeared in Rainbow Stage’s Cinderella and has appeared in Rent (Rainbow Stage), Altar Boyz (PTE/WST) and Mamma Mia (Mirvish). MTYP audiences will remember him for his energetic and touching performance in Danny, King of the Basement. We are thrilled to have these two wonderful artists as part of our faculty team!

As we welcome this new team, we would also like to thank Cheyenne Schroeder for all her contributions to the Musical Theatre Company. Cheyenne decided to take a hiatus as Musical Theatre Director for the upcoming season but she will continue to be a part of our faculty in other areas. We are so grateful for her past and continued contributions to MTYP and the positive impact she has had on so many students during her tenure. She plays an important role in having established the Musical Theatre Company as a cherished place for many young actors.
