HOW DOES IT WORK?

CAST is an evangelistic, arts-focused, service-minded mission team. The Arts Ministries Bureau annually assembles a production team and selects a play, musical, or original piece to produce. That’s where YOU come in! See below for audition and application information.

WHAT’S THE SCHEDULE LIKE?

Accepted members begin their adventure in June with rehearsals and orientation in New York. The mission team then begins a 6(ish) week-long summer performance and teaching tour, ending in July/August. Performances and teaching will take place at Salvation Army summer camps for kids, community centers, corps, churches, and street festivals around the Eastern Territory.

WHERE DOES EVERYONE EAT AND SLEEP? AND WHO PAYS FOR ALL OF THAT?

CAST will lodge, travel and eat together in community throughout their tour. Everything they need for the summer they will carry with them: sets, costumes, props, and sound equipment. All expenses, such as food and lodging, are covered. Personal items such as soap, shampoo, etc. and occasional meals however are not. An additional stipend is generally gifted to each member in two installments.

SWEET! WHERE DO I SIGN UP?

Not so fast! Teaching and performing around the Eastern Territory is hard work. Each member gives up many personal freedoms for the privilege of combining their love for God and the creative arts. It involves living and traveling, eating and breathing, together for 2 months. It also involves clear communication and forgiveness. It’s blood, sweat and tears sometimes (hopefully not too much blood). But it’s SO rewarding.
