Your favorite Christian Arts Student Theater group is back for a magical adventure with Peter Pan, April 27-29, 2018 at MCHS. The turnout is incredible for this show, with 62 children participating, and 21 of them are first time actors with CAST. Kimberly Voller returns as the Senior Director and joining her will be Christo Poggas as Co-Director, Paige Lush as Music Director and Heather Tynis Choreographer. CAST had performed Peter Pan in 2010, their 4th production. Kimberly said it is such a wonderful story and allows for many children to participate, so she thought it would be fun to direct it for a second time. It was their first show with “flying” and that was just amazing to see on opening night... truly magical.

There are still many opportunities for those with a little stage-fright to be a part of the fun. Building sets, painting, decorating and not to mention the costumes (I mentioned 62 kids, right). If you are interested in spending time with an excellent group of people, contact Kimberly for a schedule and you can jump right in, as your schedule allows. There are former actors who have grown into integral members of the production team and do an amazing job.

All parts have been assigned, rehearsals are underway, and the excitement is building. As always, this show will be fantastic with all the talents of children from Marengo, as well as Huntley, Woodstock and Crystal Lake! From just a small after school activity at Zion, it is awesome to see how CAST has grown.

Being completely self-funded, one way that CAST can help off-set their costs is with a Quarter Auction that will be held at Joe’s Place on March 16th at 6:00pm. This event has become very popular and is supported through donations of gifts, services and baskets from local businesses. It is a great night for the CAST families to come out and have fun, along with the community to support this wonderful organization.
