Founded in 1977, Creative Arts Theatre & School (CATS) was one of the oldest operating youth theaters in the nation. CATS creates theater by youth, for youth, with young people taking leading roles, both on stage and off.
Perhaps best known for its rich heritage in theater education. CATS offered classes year round for children 4 - 18 and adults in all aspects of theater education. Classes include Creative Drama, Acting, Musical Theater, Private Voice, Improv, Ballet, Tap, Jazz, and more. The greatest opportunity that CATS offers to its students and the community at large is the opportunity to perform frequently in professionally-produced productions.
Due to a devastating fire on July 4, 2012 and subsequent unfortuate dealings, CATS was forced to cease operations in August 2016
