During the Fall Semester, students will focus on building character and storytelling as an ensemble. We will be working jointly with CAST vocal instructors while putting together the production of A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD! Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special. Students will be encouraged to expand upon the familiar stories, and to work jointly with CAST staff to build this production. In tandem with the production, the class will work on raising all students from their starting level. Some students may choose to focus on technical work, as well.
PERFORMANCES FOR THIS CLASS WILL BE PRESENTED TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY ON DECEMBER 14th AND 15th at 6:00 PM. 

The Spring Semester will build upon the work done in the first semester, as we work to create the play CLUE: ON STAGE, based on the board game and the classic 1985 movie. Students will be encouraged to take ownership of the material while also having the opportunity to work on scenes and monologues.

All Senior High Studio students will be allowed to miss just 2 classes per semester, as ensemble work depends on the presence and participation of all students.

 

 

While reasonable considerations will be made to accommodate the needs of each student. Community Academy of Stage and Theatre reserves the right to reconsider enrollment or send a student home should issues require support beyond the capabilities of the CAST staff.

Additional courses are being developed. Please check back soon and don't forget to sign up for updates on the latest information.
