FOSTERING APPRECIATION OF COLLABORATIVE THEATRE
CAST, Inc. is a parent organization of current and past students, impressed by the excellence in theatre education provided by the Theatre Arts program at Andover High School. We are driven by having seen our child's confidence blossom through being a part of something bigger than themselves! And by a deep desire for young people to be seen and for their voices to be heard through a strong platform that fosters artistry and talent at all levels.
In November 2018, the school committee changed the rules around fundraising and booster organizations. We did not want to lose any support for the Drama Guild so we created a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, to support the work of Andover High School Theatre Arts. Funds raised will allow the Director of Andover Theatre Arts to administer scholarships and to pay for production costs that the school budget does not cover.
Message from the Director
of Andover Theatre Arts
SUSAN CHOQUETTE, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
"Theatre Arts is an important aspect of education at Andover High School. Our theatre productions as well as our curricular theatre arts courses provide a stage for student actors, enlist the expertise of student technicians and celebrate individual talents and collaborative efforts to create enlightened artists and scholars.
The Andover High School theatre arts program aims to teach essential theatre skills and foster a love and appreciation for this art form. Faculty and students collaborate to select material that is of the best quality and reflects the values as a community of learners.
For those students wishing to pursue an undergraduate education in theatre and the performing arts, the Theatre Arts Department strives to prepare these students by providing them with the knowledge, skills and opportunities necessary for establishing a life-long association with the theatre and performing arts.
Thank you for supporting the arts at Andover High School."
