Music Theatre Company
CTA’s newest company was formed in the spring of 2022 and named after the infamous stage left entrance of Theatre Salina, which is used by performers for rehearsals and production. It seemed appropriate to name our new music theatre company after a door that carries so much meaning in our theatrical world. These students audition for their spot in the company and are held to the highest standards at CTA. . Additionally SD1 members are required to audition for two SCT shows every year, as well as take part in all of the outreach programs CTA has partnered with. They are considered leaders at CTA and practice encouraging mindful techniques both in class time and outside of class time.
