Brett Lyman, the son of Darci and Jim Lyman of Ellinwood, will perform with the group. He is a freshmen at KSU, majoring in pre-med.
Brett graduated from EHS in 2010, and was involved in the Mystic Blues for four years. He was in musicals for three years and has had piano lessons, but never studied dance or voice.
"He loves it," said his mother Darci. "The group practices 10 hours per week."
