Good afternoon CSUS families and caregivers,
I am proud to share that this past weekend our incredible Cambridge Street scholars and staff earned a Silver Medal at this year's Massachusetts Educational Theater Guild (METG) Theater Festival! CSUS received the following accolades under the supervision and direction of Jesse Waks, Rania Costantino, and Liza Gosselin:

  • Yoshi Folkers-Park and others for "Technical Excellence in Sound Design and Operation"
  • Mali Hopkins for "Excellence in Acting for the Role of Narrator 1"
  • Eesha Gray-Pai for "Excellence in Acting for the Role of Christy in Scene 6 and 7"
  • Harriet Lund and others for the "Stage Manager's Choice" Award.

We hope you will join us for an award winning performance of Beyond the Apocalypse this Thursday or Friday evening at Cambridge Street!
