Apollo Started CATS classes last fall, and loved it from the very beginning and would look forward to going to school every week. With videos and virtual zoom classes, Apollo was still happy to see and interact with his teachers and friends in a fun, interactive way (which was a reprieve from school at home and helped him channel his energy creatively). Asking them to search for and find props in the home or just outside was super fun! The teachers have been so helpful, patient and engaging with the kids, making the experience much more enjoyable.
We're very grateful for the school's effort in helping with kids' performances and putting the films together. We look forward to coming back in the fall.

My daughter just finished her first session with CATS drama, the Saturday High Park location. She enjoyed the session and we all loved the production of “The Adams Family”. We were highly impressed with the production and enjoyed how much our daughter enjoyed the experience. We will be signing her up for the fall session!
My son does not like going to any programs, it's always a fight to get him there. Cats Drama is the only program that he is ready at the door with script in hand ready to have fun! So impressed with the June Adams Family performance !! Thank you Cats see you in September.

Our son started at CATS about a year and a half ago and it's been a fantastic trip. Sarah and the rest of the staff create a magical space for the kids to learn how to express themselves. Last years Mary Poppins was great and this years performance of the Adams Family was even better. The fact that the big production is in a Theatre downtown and the kids all have amazing costumes and makeup just make it a truly special occasion where all the kids get to participate. Thanks to all the staff who really do work hard to bring everything together. we'll be back for sure in the Fall.

“Children’s Arts Theatre School has provided so many valuable opportunities to students of Etobicoke School of the Arts. The extra training as triple threat artists has enhanced many students talents in our Music Theatre program. The invaluable experience these young artists receive outside of the school has helped them shine on the stage, created many lasting friendships and forged a great professional relationship with ESA and Children’s Arts Theatre School. We share many of the same professional guest artists, and share the same goals about educating the youth of tomorrow’s Broadway stage.”
From the Head of Musical Theatre at Etobicoke School of the Arts
“Having been fortunate enough to take classes at C.A.T.S. in my youth, I have learned invaluable skills in the areas of self-confidence, self-discipline, teamwork, and long-term commitment. The school provides the ideal environment for personal growth and development, while also nurturing and arousing the hidden artistic talents within us. C.A.T.S. inspired me to challenge myself intellectually, creatively, and emotionally, giving me the foundation for all that I have accomplished in my performing life so far and for all that I have yet to achieve.”
From David Klein, Former Student at Children’s Arts Theatre School
“Just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with the camp. It is now my kids favourite camp and they are already asking to do it again next year. I was so impressed with the performance! What a treat to watch it outside on the lawn! Thanks so much for running such an amazing camp!”
