20 Years of Theater Production at CA Slide Show

Theater experiences at Cary Academy are rooted in and fueled by the ensemble ethic--the belief that we are a diverse group of people working together as one toward a common goal. The curriculum stresses self-exploration and discovery, while instilling within students a respect for the art and the artist and providing students with tools they may use to unleash their passion, their creativity, and their unique voice.
