Cassa Musical: A showcase of emerging talent

Cassa Musical takes place in early July each year, launching our summer programming. High school students have the opportunity to be involved in a professional musical theatre production. Participants can choose to be involved in performing, set design, and technical duties, or with costumes and make up. High school credits are also available for participation in the program, courtesy of Cassa’s partnership with Chinook learning Services.

Cassa Musical showcases a different production each summer and over the years we’ve seen some outstanding performances on a wide range of themes. In 2013’s Mirror Image, fantasy came face to face with the harsh realities of high school in a pop musical adventure combining the best and sometimes worst of both worlds. Princess Whatsername in 2014 featured a classic fairy tale setting, a variety of entertaining musical numbers, and an exciting plot filled with mystery and adventure. Our 2015 Musical Theatre Showtime production was Hillbilly Hayride, a pioneer-era musical extravaganza featuring a cast of colourful characters and feuding families. In 2016 our production was You Ain’t Nothin’ But A Werewolf, a hair-raising musical spoof of 1950s horror movies. Our 2017 production of Sand was been written for Cassa by Justine Cherry-Delisle, one of our long time campers. In 2018, Don’t Stop Believin’ was bursting with rock and pop chorus numbers. This year, Cassa will present A Vampire’s Tale, which promises to be another great adventure for everyone
