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! The GSM is open to all students in grades 6-12, and no previous experience is necessary. All who audition will be cast; however, cast size is limited to the first 40 participants who enroll. Please contact our Education Department at 408-245-2979 ext. 1 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
With “Seventy-Six Trombones” blaring, CTC is pleased to announce that this year’s GSM production is…
