    Living on the streets as a newsboy in 1899, Jack Kelly finds himself as the unexpected leader of a ragtag group of newsies set on standing up to their employer, Joseph Pulitzer, when he charges them more for their newspapers. With help from his friends, Crutchie, Race, and more, Jack enlists the help of new kid Davey--and Davey's little brother Les--to fight Pulitzer's money making scheme. Things get interesting when the boys go on strike and their strike is covered by Katherine Plumber, an up and coming reporter who lands them on the front page. Full of incredible singing and dancing, this show is full of excitement while remaining family friendly.

Fine Arts Department


The Fine Arts Department offers many opportunities for students to be involved in music, theater, and art. We strongly encourage students to take part in these activities.

All students have the opportunity to sing in different choirs. Kindergarten students sing in our Thanksgiving and Graduation Programs. All 1st-6th grades students take part in a Christmas Program and a Spring Program. Students who are especially interested in music can be part of the Junior Liberty Choir.

Students in 7th-12th grade have the opportunity to participate in the Liberty Choir and sing at a Christmas Program, Spring Concert, and Graduation Service. CLA's Drama clubs produce several plays each year involving elementary/middle school as well as high school students.

All students have access to a large and well-equipped Art room. Students receive training from three of our accomplished and excellent teachers. There is an annual art show and permanent gallery displaying art from both students and teachers.






Seussical, a family-friendly musical, comes to you narrated by the one and only Cat in the Hat. He'll tell you the story of Horton the elephant from the Jungle of Nool who tries to save Whoville, a whole town so tiny it sits on a speck of dust. When the other jungle animals accuse Horton of being crazy for protecting a dust speck, the audience may wonder if anyone will be willing to stick up for Horton. With appearances by your favorite Dr. Seuss characters including the Grinch, Thing 1 and Thing 2, Gertrude McFuzz, Yertle the Turtle, and more, this show is sure to capture anyone's imagination.


Oliver! is based on the novel, Oliver Twist, written by Charles Dickens. Oliver was born on the steps of an 1800s English orphanage where his mother promptly died, leaving Oliver to grow up under the stern watch of the workhouse overseers Widow Corney and Mr. Bumble. Through a series of discouraging events, Oliver finds himself running away to London where he meets the Artful Dodger, a street-wise urchin who brings the new boy home with him. Home, for Dodger and soon for Oliver, is the Thieves' Kitchen, a rundown London building from which the famed Fagin runs a gang of street thieves. Oliver enjoys the kindness of Fagin and the boys but is soon caught up in their thievery. When Oliver gets arrested for committing a crime he didn't commit, Fagin, along with his partners—Bill Sykes and Nancy—insist on bringing him back before he can tell the police (or Mr. Brownlow the kindly gentleman who has taken an interest in Oliver's case) anything about the gang….

This musical is filled with fun music, both upbeat and dramatic. The music is also catchy and is sure to leave you singing on the way home. Families are welcome, although parents with small children should note that a main character does die in the show. Forty-three students are involved in this production, and we all hope to see you there!    

Murder by the Book

"The pen is mightier than the sword." Or is it? Gathered to decide on the world's best and worst murder mysteries of the year, the Raven Society hardly expects a murder in its midst. When faced with a threat to their lives, will the secluded society members band together and solve the mystery? Or will the murderer prevail, ending the Raven Society once and for all?
