Creative Technologies Academy is excited to announce the addition of music and drama classes to their curriculum. After a four-year absence, CTA has added an elementary music program for K-5, a middle school and high school choir program, and a high school drama class which is currently learning improvisation techniques. The high school choir, Charger Voices, will have the exciting opportunity to sing the National Anthem at the Grand Rapids Griffins game on October 17th. These courses are being taught by Jeremy Holtrop who received his bachelor’s in Music Education from Indiana Wesleyan University and his Master’s in Music from Colorado State University. Mr. Holtrop has taught choir and drama for eight years and is excited to be a part of CTA and to bring music back to the school.

Montcalm Community College’s Drama Class presents “The Absolute Most Cliched Elevator Play in the History of the Entire Universe,” by Werner Trieschmann, on Nov. 9 and 10 at the Barn Theater on the college’s Sidney campus.
When a crowded elevator becomes stuck, one of the passengers, a playwriting instructor, thinks that everybody is in fact trapped in a cliched play by an inexperienced playwright. After all, the elevator does contain a quick-tempered biker, a spaced-out new age woman, and an agitated pregnant woman. But when the instructor goes searching for the playwright, the elevator expands to include even more stereotypes including over-eager cheerleaders, a Goth kid who writes bad poetry and, of course, a clown. Will the instructor find the playwright before the cliches become out of control?
Performances are at 2 p.m. on Nov. 9 and 2 and 4 p.m. on Nov. 10 at MCC’s Barn Theater. Admission is free.
Area schools and other groups may book private performances in November and December by contacting Performing Arts Coordinator Val Vander Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org or 989-328-1218. The cost is $75 per performance.
