2017 Musical Theatre Showtime Presentation

In July 2017, travel back in time with CASSA’s Musical Theatre Showtime: SAND, A Musical Dramedy. You’ll experience the twists, turns and tunics of the first century—and many other lessons along the way!

by Justine Cherry-Delisle

Imagine power struggles and the fight for survival alongside everyday life in ancient Egypt, 49 BC. 

“Big-hearted and funny!”

“Twists at every turn!”

 “It’s contagious!”

CASSA and Calgary Board of Education in Partnership

Seven years ago the CBE and CASSA formed a partnership to provide an amazing musical theatre experience to 40 students ages 9 – 19.  MTS is now a collaboration with the Calgary Board of Education and Chinook Learning Summer School. We offer Leadership I, Leadership II and Advanced Actor Touring, high school credits.

During the first week of July students will create a full-length musical with all of the components. These include  set design, set construction, costumes, make-up, dance, singing, acting and technical. This experience is designed as an enrichment opportunity for students who are dedicated to the arts, have previous musical theatre experience (preferred, not required) and who are willing to create magic in just 6 days. 

If you know of any children aged 9-19 who would love to be a part of this type of experience please pass along a link to this page and encourage them to contact the Calgary Arts Summer School Association*. They will not be disappointed I assure you.

2016 You Ain’t Nothin’ But A Werewolf

“MTS always amazes me; putting on a full length musical in six days is unheard of. Everyone at camp aims for success and we have never failed to put on a phenomenal performance.”

Our Campers Really Do Love MTS

"Everyone is awesome to work with, and it was loads of fun!  This is probably the best way to make friends"

I like that it is fun and the people you work with are nice.  Everyone was very helpful – Chloe

"This musical theatre environment suits me because I like accomplishing stuff if I’m going to spend my time going to rehearsal.  For example: at (a different) Theatre it took us 6 months to do a 45 minute play.  It is a challenge here, but I like it."

"I love the atmosphere, positive energy and re-inforcements, teachers and when personal help is needed it is given in full and more"

"CASSA has been like a family to me, a stage to express my love for musical theatre.  I love the people, music, shows."

"I really enjoy the dynamic group of people and the amazing effort that everyone puts in to pull the show together in six days."
