Broadway Revue at Clarksville

We have decided to take this season and really showcase the musical talents of the CMS family.  Instead of a known production, we will be writing an original cabaret based on shows loved by cast members involved.  Students will get a chance to perform songs they have always dreamed of on stage, as well as work as an ensemble on several company numbers.  In addition to this creative experience, Master Class teachers will be coming in to teach workshops on Improvisation, Pantomime, Hip Hop, Tap, and Theatrical Makeup.  All of this will culminate in a one-hour cabaret performance where students will showcase their talent.
