Suite Surrender Cast Announcement

We’d like to thank everyone who came out to audition for this year’s play.  We had a wonderful turnout!  You all really impressed us in your auditions; you were entertaining, funny, and impressive to watch.  Ultimately, you made our job of narrowing down to a small cast incredibly difficult, and we’re thrilled to have such a diverse array of talent here at CGHS for this and future productions.

We had 34 students come out for this show, and so we would like to encourage those of you who didn’t make the cast to keep coming back!  We were honestly inspired by your auditions, and we really would love to see you remain involved–either in crew, in future productions, or in theatre classes!  If you are a freshman, sophomore, or junior, please don’t forget that you can sign up for the 1-semester Dramatic Lit elective course next year.  We’ll be reading plays, acting them out, doing mini-performances; all of which will ultimately help you as an actor and performer.

If you didn’t make the cast but would like to remain involved, here are your options:
