A note from the Director/Children’s Director: Hello friends! I am always aware that with the posting of every cast/crew list, there is incredible joy and also great sadness. It's a crazy mixture of emotions, and it never gets easier. Know that if you auditioned YOU ARE SO BRAVE AND AWESOME! We had the most students we've ever audition for shows this semester (over 100) and simply did not have the physical space to accommodate everyone in our cast. HOWEVER, we are thrilled to add those students not cast to our great student crew! You will help us make magic and bring the show(s) to life. If you were not cast- KEEP GOING! Whether you are on cast or crew, you will have a BLAST and help create an incredible experience on and off the stage. Get ready to be a little bit naughty!

Also, a huge congrats to our incredible cast/crew of our High school production of Frankenstein! This show is stacked with talent in its cast and crew and you will NOT want to miss it. Epic is a word that comes to mind. You all are wonderful. We're so proud of our students! -Lindsey Branson, CTWS & Matilda Director
