Heather Holland began her CYT journey as an audience member and super fan eight years ago, as she supported her youngest sister in various CYT Lafayette productions. Her long time dream of becoming involved with musical theater herself came true a few short years later when she was invited to observe her dear friend’s teen drama class at CYT Lafayette. Observing turned into co-teaching which turned into solo-teaching! As a Cyt staff member over the past five and a half years, Heather has had the privilege and joy of being a part of the creative teams for Northside High School's Guys & Dolls, CCT Lafayette’s White Christmas, CYT Lafayette’s Peter Pan and Into the Woods. She currently teaches teen drama, and enjoys dabbling in all aspects of the theater realm, particularly costuming and set dressing. She has worked as a registered nurse on the neuro unit at Lafayette General Medical Center for the past 9 years, and has loved having CYT as her creative outlet.
