A Christmas Carol at Catholic Central is…
Theater has always been a part of Catholic Central’s tradition. As a school that was founded on the principals of offering a “well-rounded education”, not only rooted in spirituality but offering opportunities for students to expand their horizons through literature and the arts, CCHS newly committed focus on the arts makes sense.
A new fall production will feature new talent
Catholic Central lost a handful of very talented kids last year, culminating in the CCHS production of Thoroughly Modern Millie, yielding a record number of Jerry Award Nominations and eventual Winners. A new school year is here and a new crop of talent has begun their artistic journey with Catholic Central’s first Fall Theater Production in years, with Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”.
The cast is rather large and thus Mrs. Galstad, CCHS Theater Teacher and Director of “Carol” had to go outside CCHS walls, holding auditions in the Burlington Community. “I thought it would be a great idea to invite new faces into our Catholic Central Theater family”, stated Mrs. Galstad, “We had great community enthusiasm and many auditioned. And many got roles. We are thankful that we have a community that is willing to be a part of such a large undertaking…47 people were cast from those auditions!” All in all, 3/4 of this year’s theater production will be new to CCHS in some way.
65 Dickens Characters
There are 65 Characters in this production. If there was ever a time to get into the spirit of Christmas, it would be to see 65 Dickens Characters in a theater.
Three Generations of CC Alumni
Out of those 47, there are 3 that represent a deep theater tradition at Catholic Central. The Smetana Wagners will have three generations of CC Alums represented in this production. TRADITION!
The new Fall Production of A Christmas Carol opens December 6th at Catholic Central High School’s Topper Hall. Dates and ticket information is as follows:
