The Class Act Kids' Cabaret is a musical theater training program designed for students with a serious interest in developing their singing, acting and musical theater performance skills. The first Kids' Cabaret production was in April 2012 and featured a cast of 18. Last fall's auditions attracted such a strong group of students that the program was expanded and split into two rehearsal groups: the Show Stoppers and the Scene Stealers. Both have trained and rehearsed on Sunday afternoons since November, and they are merging to share their talents in "Where's My Spotlight?!"
