To every performer, the art of theatre means something different. Being a performer adds something unique and valuable to all of our lives.
At CGST, our hope is that our students will gain as much as possible from the art they create.
Please submit a short essay explaining what theatre means to you, how it has impacted your life, and how you hope to give back to the performing arts.
What has theatre added to your life? How has your participation or interest in the performing arts helped shape your personal growth and priorities? Do you hope to contribute something back to the world of theatre?
Here at CGST we are all about building a strong community.
We live off of our motto "Peace and Love" and strive to make an emotionally safe environment that is artistically supportive and free from unneeded criticism.
Please submit a short essay describing how you have given back to or participated in your community in a positive way.
What have you done to contribute to an environment of Peace and Love? How will you use what you have learned through those experiences once in the CGST community? When specifically have you used Peace and Love to help, serve, or support your community or someone in it?
