Arden Cahill Academy recently hosted our 5th grade play, "Oliver." Students learned vocal choreography, blocking, and dance choreography for the show. They are able to experience mounting a show from both the acting and technical aspects. The students fill the roles of prop masters, light and sound operators, assistant stage managers, and actors.

Arden Cahill Academy, recently hosted our 6th grade class play, "King and I." The musical's plot displays the experiences of Anna (Emma Leighton), a British schoolteacher hired as part of the King's (Brady Lee) desire to modernize his country and prove that the people of Siam are not barbarians. The relationship between the King and Anna is met by conflict through much of the show, as well as by a love that neither can admit. Our students learned about all aspects of musical theatre including solo and choral singing, choreography, and blocking. Several of the students at Arden Cahill Academy currently participate in local theatre productions throughout the city, many of which will move on to attend NOCCA programs.
