StageCats’ 5th Season Begins!

It’s a special year for the StageCats as they begin their 5th season of productions! 🙂

In true StageCats style, the season kicked off with a fun-filled performance at the ASA Fair, complete with smoke machine, confetti cannon, teletubbies and neon. We are beyond excited to share another amazing year of theatre with the CISB Community! Take a quick peek behind the curtain (Video Cred: Bella, Gr. 10):


StageCats’ first general meeting will be on Monday, September 10th at 1pm in Ms. Knowles’ classroom E213. At this meeting, details about the November/ December production will be revealed, and new and returning StageCats will find out about auditions, roles, schedules and the many ways to be a part of the StageCats family!

Rehearsals are already underway for StageCats’ first production of the year, Sweeney Todd: School Edition, which hits the stage on October 25th, 26th, 27th at 7pm. This small-cast show is enrichment for seasoned StageCats who are ready to take on a new challenge! Check out a snippet from rehearsal below:

Back At It!

After a 2-month summer vacation, we are back to business in the CISB Theatre Arts classroom! Grade 8 and 9 students have been taking part in a a series of fun, high-energy icebreakers, activities and games, as well as reviewing basic stage skills through performance. Now that we are back in drama mode, students are ready to dive into their first units – Improv for Grade 8 and Melodrama for Grade 9. Take a look at our first two weeks below! 🙂 And don’t forget to check out our MYP Theatre hashtag: #CISBtheatrearts
