Great Spring Musical

California Theatre Center’s Great Spring Musical (GSM) is a beloved annual tradition for middle and high school students. This program gives young actors the opportunity to rehearse and perform a full-scale production of a musical theatre classic – all while staying true to CTC’s process-based mission and providing an ensemble-driven experience in which every student gets an opportunity to shine!
