Brillianteen is a 58-year old McGaw YMCA program and Evanston tradition where high school juniors and seniors present a student-produced (with adult supervision) Broadway musical every spring. In 2008, Brillianteen's "Little Shop of Horrors" involved 275 High School Juniors and Seniors (18 Youth Showboard Members who have a lot of responsibility), 110 cast members and 145 crew members) and 80 Adult Volunteers (30 Adult Showboard Members and 50 parent volunteers) and 50+ Community Sponsors (Evanston businesses and patrons who sponsor the show, placing ads in the showbook, and donating supplies). There is a charge to participate as this is a fund raiser for the YMCA.
