Join us for Side Show in the Cab Calloway Theater!

High School Musical - 6 DATES THROUGH MAR 15, 2020

Based on the true story of conjoined twins and famed entertainers Violet and Daisy Hilton, Side Show is a remarkable musical about acceptance, love, and embracing one’s uniqueness. As the starring act of a sideshow, helmed by an abusive ringmaster, Violet and Daisy Hilton are eager to accept an offer of fame, fortune, and potential romance proffered by Terry, a talent scout, and Buddy, a budding musician. As stars on the Orpheum Circuit, it seems that Violet and Daisy have everything they ever wanted. The one thing they lack, however, is the fulfillment of their hearts’ desires. Different as they are, when it comes to matters of the heart, Daisy and Violet have the same burning questions: “Who could proudly stand beside me? Who will love me as I am?” Nearly entirely sung-through, Side Show features soulful music, stunningly beautiful lyrics, and powerhouse show-stoppers, particularly the famous duets “Who Will Love Me as I Am” and “I Will Never Leave You.” A stunning reminder of the importance of accepting and celebrating what makes us unique, Side Show is a true story that will touch audience’s hearts.

Black History Month Celebration

Inspired by Beyoncé’s Homecoming documentary

Black History Homecoming Show at Cab Calloway School of the Arts on the 21st of February 2020. The show was a student-developed, directed, and defined production celebrating the cultural aspects of being a young person of color in American society today. The Black History Homecoming Show was inspired by Beyoncé’s Homecoming documentary. Within the show, performances ranged from voices lifting in prayer to dances that expressed the hardships and injustice that people of color face. Students of Cab danced, sang, cited poetry, and celebrated contemporary artists as well as those with whom our parents grew up. These performances represented a culture, which has been built on love, sacrifice, oppression, injustice, racism, and much more. Most of all, at Cab Calloway School of the Arts, we celebrated a culture that desires to know and to include, to understand and to grow by truly knowing one another. Overall, the students at CCSA put together an amazing show, which immersed the audience in a journey of being a young person of color in the current American society.

Sincerely,
Kimorah B.
