YAMO would be nothing without the contributions of its individual companies, each of which brings a unique flair to the creative process. The three acting companies- the devoted Acting company, the zany Impulse company, and the physical-comedy oriented Unexpected company- rehearse the short skits and humorous songs that constitute the majority of the show. Dance company is responsible for a refreshing change of pace, inserting style and grace into the show. Playing the original, student-composed music is the Orchestra company. Behind the scenes, the Croo company works hard to make sure that YAMO looks and sounds spectacular. Croo is responsible not only for building the set, but for managing all technical aspects of the show, including costumes, lights, sound, shifting, and props. Of course, none of YAMO would be possible without the efforts of the Student Governing Board, who conceive of and write the show over the summer, and are responsible for the direction of the companies.
