Theater opportunities begin for CCS students in fifth grade. Middle school students have the opportunity to put on a performance each spring, while high school students perform a play in the fall and a musical in the spring. Central’s Performing Arts Center provides a top-notch setting for strong performances from our casts and crews!

Drama productions at CCS provide students with opportunities that cultivate their creativity and gifts of self-expression and storytelling. Students learn a lot during the rehearsal process, from memorizing scripts, to choreography, to gaining self-confidence, and working as a team. The story that students are portraying on stage may be a comedy, drama, mystery, or historical depiction. Middle and high school plays allow students to work as a close ensemble.  During the rehearsal process, the cast spends time participating in theater games, learning about the art form, and working on characterization.
