ABOUT us

At Yippee Coyote!, children's imaginations run wild!

 

We believe in the importance of play  in promoting a child's healthy development. It nurtures relationships, relieves stress, and increases happiness. 

Introducing a child to theater arts has shown to improve test scores, increase creativity, build self-esteem, teach patience, and promote empathy, amongst many more benefits! 

We guide children in discovering new ways of self-expression; instilling a sense of confidence and encouraging ideas, all while maintaining that sense of play.

WHO WE ARE

Kacey Roye

Hi there! My name is Kacey. This program was inspired by my son. His intense love and desire for unstructured, self-directed play made me realize that there is not enough time built into the typical school day to allow for this crucial development to occur. Theater Arts is also not something that is offered as part of the typical elementary school curriculum. I have paired this need for child-led creative play with my personal experience in the areas of theater arts and early childhood education. And so, the concept of Yippee Coyote! | Theater for Play was born, introducing children to new ways of self-expression through hands-on performance-based learning.

Our curriculum and in-class daily activities address the needs of parents, classroom teachers, and other grown-ups, and gives every child the best opportunity to learn and grow through self-expression.

Yippee Coyote! Is developed, overseen, and facilitated by Kacey Roye, a trained theater arts professional with over 10+ years of teaching experience, performing in over 100 different stage productions throughout her lifetime. She is a Southern California native, performing since the age of five, at a children’s performing arts school in Orange, CA. After attending Chapman University’s College of Performing Arts for a BFA in Theatre Performance, she relocated to Portland, OR, where she worked as an actor in theatre and on-camera work. After moving to San Antonio Texas in 2012, she continued her acting career, while serving as a resident actor and non-profit arts educator for various theatre companies over the past ten years including The Magik Theatre, The Classic Theatre of San Antonio, and The Public Theatre of San Antonio. She has written theatre curriculum and created programs for the Witte Museum, The McNay, and inaugurated The Classic Theatre's Summer program "Camp Classic." She is certified in the Wolf Trap arts-integration teaching method and is currently a SAG-AFTRA talent agent at Bankston Talent.
