The Guys of CTW
When many boys hear something about acting or musicals, they immediately dismiss it as silly and something they wouldn’t like. What they don’t realize is that they are missing out on a very fun and rewarding activity. During dress rehearsal of our most recent production, Mary Poppins, I had the opportunity to talk to a few of the boys in the cast about their experience at CTW, and why they decided to get involved in theatre. Most CTW productions are double cast, giving the opportunity for many children to participate in our productions. The following is an interview with three of the leads from Mary Poppins: James, Liam, and Andrew.
If you are a boy and don’t know where to start when looking to get involved in theatre, join us at CTW, and you are sure to have a blast!
