C.A.S.T. (Creative Arts at Steamer Ten)
Creative Arts at Steamer Ten (CAST) is Steamer No.10′s multi-disciplinary theatre arts school. Each session offers students a unique opportunity to explore some combination of acting, singing, and/or dancing under the supervision of our team of professional instructors. Experience is not required – just the willingness to have fun while learning the ins and outs of working in a professional theatre.
As part of the C.A.S.T program, theatre exercises and warm- ups are a vital part of the overall theatre experience and learning process. When it comes to putting on a successful production, creating a strong sense of community among its cast members is essential. It is through various theatre exercises that such a relationship is established. These exercises involve playing many fun games, but it is through these games that students begin to gain a better understanding of what it means to be an ensemble and to collaborate. Moreover, the games promote confidence and work to improve social and communication skills.
Although schools and organizations can purchase tickets for scheduled performances at special rates, we can also schedule Kids’ Fare performances to suite your organization’s needs. Please note that Steamer No. 10 Theatre is approved for BOCES funding. Each of our Kids’ Fare shows is designed to satisfy New York State Elementary Learning Standards. Contact us for more information about specific shows.
