About C.A.S.T.

In the early 1990’s Bill Nothstein, the art teacher at the elementary school, and Ron DeMaio, a third grade teacher, got together to produce two shows that were used as fundraisers for sick children within the school. After consecutive successes the duo decided to formalize a theatre group, originally called “The Sheckler Players,” with its first official performance being The Wizard of Oz in 1993. The shows were originally performed by elementary school staff and students and their families.

Around 1996 the name was changed to the Catasauqua Area Showcase Theatre and was open to all families within the school district. However, it wasn’t before long that the doors were open to all who were interested no matter where they lived. Since then membership has significantly grown and in some of our biggest years, our cast size, of just performers, has reached above 90 individuals. CAST is fortunate enough to bring in talent from not only Catasauqua, but many of the neighboring cities and towns as well. Since its inception in 1993, CAST has had the privilege of working with 547 individual performers! The cast size was not the only aspect of CAST to grow over the years. Read more…
