From Selfie to Godspell, this group knows how to wow the crowd! The Act One cast members for 2015 are Avery Williams, Katie Forbidussi, Will McLain, Leah Cloninger, Grace Dupre, Colin Gallagher, Mary King, Katherine Hanebutt, and working in tech: Brad Kesling.

Their current production Selfie is a moving play, which follows characters on their separate yet intertwined paths through high school where they all face the different obstacles that come about during our day and age. Each of their problems and decisions vary in severity, but each tale can impact the audience and shed light on the struggles that come with peer pressures and the harships we all face in life.

All Act One members agree that they would be lost without the guidance of their dedicated director, Ms. Tomaselli. Ms. Tomaselli is one of our newest at Charlotte Christian School and she has definitely been a great addition to our fine arts community. Ms. Tomaselli was the Director of the Theatre Department at Stivers School for the Arts in Dayton, Ohio. Prayer has been her driving force in the arts. She would always pray for her students and all of the participants in her fine arts community. From 2011-2014 God was telling her it was time to move in another direction. He eventually led her to Charlotte Christian where she has been embraced with open arms. “Charlotte Christian has given me peace,” she states. “I am at peace because I know that this is were the Lord has meant for me to be.”

When asked about her Act One group, she gives very encouraging and thoughtful remarks about them. She is proud of how far they’ve come in these short months and commends them on their willingness to use their abilities to the fullest so they can grow in their skills.

In the coming months, look out for their biggest performance of the year, Godspell, which is sure to knock the ball out of the park this spring.
