“Words cannot express how much my daughter took away from this experience! She made some great friends, learned, and her passion for musical theater has grown.”

Cast parent

“My students loved it. For many, it was the first play/musical they have ever seen on stage. Since they had no frame of reference, they kept thinking we were going to see a movie. They loved the play and could not stop talking about it! “


“CTE does an incredible job! They set the bar high and the kids rise to it. I love that so many kids are included in the productions and each child feels like a star.”
