What is CASA Live!?

Students in grades 11 and 12 begin the process of assisting with the development of the End of Year Performance titled, CASA Live!, starting the first week of school. Each week, students from all programs work together in the Integrated Arts curriculum. Six various art disciplines: dance, theatre, music, film and video, visual art and creative writing, collaborate to discover a theme, and develop the end of year program while cultivating an appreciation for the various art disciplines.

During the course of a 9-month period, students break into small groups consisting of various arts disciplines to discuss and create scenes that later develop into fully realized components of the performance. Each class is asked to embellish scenes, using dialogue, music, prop suggestions, movement, and film interpretation as related to the chosen theme and thesis. The result? An artistic rendering of a theme more closely related to performance art than a high school musical or narrative play. More importantly, students learn the art of working together --- all the highs and lows of collaboration that accumulates into an original, crowd-pleasing performance for the community to enjoy.
