From Paul Aikins, Head of Musical Theatre at Etobicoke School of the Arts
“Children’s Arts Theatre School has provided so many valuable opportunities to students of Etobicoke School of the Arts. The extra training as triple threat artists has enhanced many students talents in our Music Theatre program. The invaluable experience these young artists receive outside of the school has helped them shine on the stage, created many lasting friendships and forged a great professional relationship with ESA and Children’s Arts Theatre School. We share many of the same professional guest artists, and share the same goals about educating the youth of tomorrow’s Broadway stage.”
From David Klein, Former Student at Children’s Arts Theatre School
“Having been fortunate enough to take classes at C.A.T.S. in my youth, I have learned invaluable skills in the areas of self-confidence, self-discipline, teamwork, and long-term commitment. The school provides the ideal environment for personal growth and development, while also nurturing and arousing the hidden artistic talents within us. C.A.T.S. inspired me to challenge myself intellectually, creatively, and emotionally, giving me the foundation for all that I have accomplished in my performing life so far and for all that I have yet to achieve.”
From Parent, Karin Miller
“Just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with the camp. It is now my kids favourite camp and they are already asking to do it again next year. I was so impressed with the performance! What a treat to watch it outside on the lawn! Thanks so much for running such an amazing camp!”
