All of theses productions require significant contributions from students gifted in the visual and or musical arts. In addition to these opportunities, there are classes in art and pottery and an annual art show.
For three nights in November, the drama department puts on a dessert theatre production that is the annual highlight of the CHS fine arts program. Guests are welcome to enjoy a delicious dessert and a wonderful evening of high school drama.
With leadership from CHS staff and parent volunteers, CHS students comprise the entire cast, as well as important stage, makeup, costume, and production roles. CHS students not directly involved in the drama can still volunteer to help with decorating and serving during the evening performances, making dessert theatre the CHS event that requires the most involvement by the student body next to grad.
Dessert Theatre student fee - $20
