Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors: Next year will be an exciting year for Cannon Arts with a brand new performance space and a big winter musical. If you think you might be interested in performing in the musical, please take a few minutes to fill out the brief survey that Mr. Mac emailed to you. Filling out the survey doesn’t commit you to auditioning, nor is it required for participation, but your info will help the production team make the smartest choice of musical for our current pool of students. Contact Mr. Mac with any questions.


Love our seniors.
