CHILDREN'S MUSICAL THEATER SAN JOSE
April 16, 2011
Both my 25-yr. old and 20-yr. old sons went through CMTSJ summer camps in their middle school years. Performing arts camps like CMTSJ's help kids develop poise in front of the public and teach them the value of collaborative work. My family and I continue to patronize the theater's Mainstage (older kids) and Marquee (alumni) productions as a way to see Broadway musicals on the cheap. Making these shows accessible that way, adds value to the community's cultural fabric. And, considering that CMTSJ casts anyone who auditions for all (except the Marquee) productions, the calibre of the finished product really exceeds what one might expect. CMTSJ fills an important niche in the San Jose cultural scene.
