Please note that much of the information in this 2021 season calendar was published before the recent resurgence of COVID-19 in Northwest Michigan. The CSA Board of Trustees has spent considerable time researching and discussing how to open safely this summer under the current Michigan COVID guidelines. They currently believe that some of our traditional activities & lessons can be held; and the Trustees have authorized the hiring of staff for the 2021 season.
Some events have been canceled (notably the Children’s Operetta and Adult Musical - See Update Below); and/or their dates and times have changed. Please review the homepage banner for the latest information.

Update on the Children's Operetta
After multiple meetings and thoughtful consideration, the directors of the Children's Operetta regret to say that we will be unable to present a Children's Operetta this summer. With the strict coronavirus safety guidelines mandated by the State of Michigan regarding indoor rehearsals and performances, the constantly changing nature of positive case rates, and the inability for our children to yet be vaccinated, there did not appear to be any safe way to hold an operetta in the fun, relaxed and organic manner that is the hallmark of these special productions. This was a very difficult decision to make, but the possibility of an outbreak amongst the children and adults participating was simply too great a risk to take. Please mark your calendars for next summer's operetta, "One Cray Cray Day at the CSA - Another Operetta Odyssey," which is scheduled for Saturday, July 23, 2022 and will be open to any rising first through ninth graders (who missed their final 8th grade year of participating in the operetta this year).
Although a children's operetta cannot be offered this summer, there will be other performance opportunities (if it is determined they can be offered safely at the time) including:
- Vocal and Instrumental special music for operetta-aged children/teens with performing experience at outdoor worship services. Please contact Ken Cox at or Shannon Wise at for more information.
- A collaborative "CSA'S GOT TALENT" event offered in partnership with the operetta directors and the Arts Committee targeted for Friday, July 16 (rain date July 17). All ages will be welcome to participate, and special assistance will be available from the operetta directors upon request. Stay tuned for more information to be communicated in early July.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to navigate this ever-changing pandemic landscape.
Update on the Adult Operetta
After several meetings of the production team of Beauty and the Beast, we are sorry to let you know that we are canceling this summer's performance. With the State of Michigan guidelines, a concern for the health and safety of all who would be involved, and realizing that we cannot predict the status of COVID during this summer, we have made this difficult decision. We are planning to perform Beauty and the Beast in August 2022, and hope that you will "be our guest."
