Academic learning is reinforced and self-confidence is created when students demonstrate what they have learned through theatrical performances. At CCA, students have the opportunity to get involved in many ways: from acting, singing, and dancing to set and costume design, lighting and sound work. Students learn how to develop fundamental acting skills and characters and gain hands-on experience in stage management and production. One large-scale musical theater performance, held in the early spring, highlights their hard work. Additional smaller-scale productions are traditionally held in the fall, with other performance opportunities offered at other times in the school year.
