CTA is committed to making theatre education available to all, regardless of income status. If tuition poses a financial hardship, scholarships and payment plans are available. For more information, please email CTA's Executive Director, April Forrer, at All queries will be kept confidential.

COVID Safety Protocol:

  • MASK ON! All individuals who enter CTA's buildings will be required to wear a face mask (covering the nose & mouth), regardless of vaccination status. This is a result of rising cases of COVID-19 among vaccinated and non vaccinated individuals in our area & CTA's concern of keeping everyone safe.

  • Only students pre-registered for the workshop will be admitted to CTA.

  • Parents must check students in and out with a teaching artist/staff member at the front door.

  • Doors will remain locked. Guests must call the office (410-757-2281) or ring the doorbell.

  • Upon entrance all staff, teaching artists, students, and guests must have a temperature scan (no one will be permitted entrance with a temperature of 100.4 or more) and must sanitize their hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer.

  • COVID-19 Assumption of Risk, Release, and Waiver of Liability Agreement - All parents/guardians must sign & return along with the usual release/waiver documentation.

  • No drinking from the water fountain. Staff, teaching artists, and students may use the water fountain to re/fill their water bottles only.

  • During the workshop period (and in the few weeks after), should your student/s or someone in your household test positive for COVID-19 you must notify CTA ( immediately. We will then notify all families in that workshop session, teaching artists, CTA's Board of Directors and staff that someone involved (names will not be released) has tested positive and recommend that everyone take the necessary actions (example: consult your family physician/doctor, be tested, go in to quarantine for the time period required.) We will then evaluate going into an online session for the time period mandated for quarantine.

  • Should a new state or county order change any of these requirements or prohibit us from being in-person, we will adjust our schedule according to the time period mandated.

PRODUCTION WORKSHOPS with Tiffany Shannon Productions

Through theatre production workshops students gain experience and knowledge in acting techniques, improvisation, characterization, movement, props, scenery, and much more. These workshops conclude with a final performance on our main stage. In production workshops, teamwork is a major focus and all participants are guaranteed a role. We encourage students with all levels of experience to attend. * NOTE: Theatre Production Workshop show titles are subject to change due to cast size and requirements.

Cue the lightning!  Cue the thunder!  It’s monster mayhem in this frightfully fun comedy!  Transylvania High School is where the kids of all the classic monster movie villains go to learn the tricks of the trade.  There are vampires, mummies, werewolves, zombies, witches, Frankenstein’s daughter, the Invisible Man’s son, and even the Phantom of the Opera’s kid, all of them struggling to live up to their parents’ legendary examples.  From science fair projects to cliques, these monsters struggle with the same stresses as typical teenagers.  When a group of human high school students stumbles upon the monster school thanks to a broken down bus, utter mayhem ensues.  Far more silly than spooky, this comedy delivers both loads of laughs and a gentle message about befriending those who are different from us.

Cancelled due to low enrollment.

Seussical Kids.png
Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in this fantastical musical extravaganza! From the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat, our narrator, tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child, who gets in trouble for thinking too many "thinks." Horton's challenge is twofold — not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
