Columbus, OH- This summer, Columbus Children’s Theatre (CCT) is hosting its second annual College Preparatory Program. On August 4 at 2:30 p.m. the College Prep students will present their final showcase at CCT’s Park St. Theatre (512 Park St. Columbus, OH 43215). This program will be a selection of songs, scenes, and monologues from various styles and eras of theatre and is free to attend. Directed by Wright State Associate Professor of Acting and Musical Theatre, Greg Hellems, this showcase will be the culmination of four weeks of hard work by the students in this program.
“CCT offers an amazing opportunity to young theatre artists. Not only are they afforded a chance to see great performances from a professional theatre company, they also get valuable information and training from a knowledgeable faculty made up of working professionals. Columbus certainly has a treasure in this organization,” said Hellems.

About The College Preparatory Program
The students in this audition-based program train intensely with faculty members from acclaimed acting, musical theatre, and dance programs to help discover more deeply who they are as artists. The program strives to help students develop this deeper understanding so that they might apply it towards preparing for college auditions at top theatre schools. Students are pushed to their limits as they explore characters in monologues and songs in preparation for these auditions.
