Making A Dramatic Difference

The CenterPoint Academy motto is “You Belong Here,” and nobody knows that better than the 716 people, ages 3-18, that we train in performing arts. What we really teach them, however, is how to be the awesomest version of themselves.

While the performing arts training, we offer is top-notch, taught by the best local working artists, the end result for the vast majority of our students isn’t the Broadway stage.

Instead, we use the arts to teach lessons that matter in any facet of life – confidence, discipline, leadership, self-esteem, teamwork, friendship, and creativity. Our students learn these universally-relevant skills and become assets wherever they go – at school, at work, at church, and at home.

The Academy provides unique performance opportunities to these students on the CenterPoint Theatre stages, performing for more than 15,000 people per year, in over 125 performances of more than a dozen different shows.

FROM THE DIRECTOR

Les Misérables, is nothing short of a worldwide phenomenon. The musical originally premiered in 1980 and is still touring today, an absolutely incredible feat that owes its success to the power inherent in its source material – Victor Hugo’s classic novel. Mr. Hugo summed up his 1463-page novel this way:

This book is a drama whose first character is the Infinite. Man is the second. … Whenever we meet the Infinite in man, whether well or poorly understood, we react with respect. There is in the synagogue, in the mosque, in the pagoda, and in the wigwam, a hideous side that we detest and a sublime side that we adore. What a subject of meditation, and what a limitless source of reverie is this reflection of God upon the human wall!

This is what the story is truly about – not the French Revolution, not a minor uprising years later, not even about Jean Valjean – it is about the fact that we have the Infinite in us all. It is a pleading with us all to see that in one another, to treat each other with grace and love, and to understand what true beauty is.

It invites us to see that not only do we have the Infinite in us, but we all experience misery – in some way we are all “les misérables.” From that place of misery we have two choices: To descend further into the shadows or to climb toward the light, the infinite! How do we climb toward the light? We love. Because,

to love another person is to see the face of God.”

Every character in the show discovers their purest self by giving of themselves in love. Whether Valjean for Cosette and Marius, Fantine for Cosette, Javert for Valjean, or Enjolras for his countrymen, it is impossible to tell the story of Les Misérables without telling the story of the transforming power of love for our fellow man.

Perhaps that is why Les Misérables has become the most beloved musical of all time.

ACADEMY FAN CLUB

The Academy Fan Club is our theatre guild.  It’s a group of grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, and other Academy fans. It’s designed to take the incredible spirit of volunteerism and support here and to organize it in a more formal, effective way. The Fan Club supports the Academy with teaching, feeding, building, breaking down, costuming, propping, teaching, fundraising, and other cool things that make the Academy awesome.

Most of these Fan Club opportunities don’t take much time, but they make a real difference. You can see more about the Fan Club here:

Most importantly, WE LOVE GRANDPARENTS!!!

Grandparents are some of our biggest fans, and lots of our interest in even forming the Fan Club was to involve the grands.  We want to include as many of them as possible.
