Founded in 2010, Creative Arts Theater was formed from the minds of Tim and Cherie Glisson, the very couple who were quite the star players in the High Desert Theater scene a couple years ago! After an extended sabbatical from the Theater world, they created the very theater company you’ve seen today, Creative Arts Theater! Creative Arts Theater was created to provide up and coming stars of the craft with Scholarships and to further the education of the younger actors and actresses by way of experience on stage. Creative Arts Theater is for all ages from 5 – 500!
Starting off with a bang, they put on their first show as CAT: Grease. (which received amazing reviews) That paved the way for more shows at the High Desert Center of the Arts. Robert Blomker joined the CAT Board shortly after that and joined into the Creative Process. After Grease, CAT put on the show: You’re A Good
Man Charlie Brown, Directed by Robert Blomker. After another rave review show, Creative Arts Theater joined forces with the High Desert Center of the Arts and became part of the High Desert Cultural Arts Foundation! 2011 looked to be an amazing sophomore year for CAT with shows like Seussical, RENT, Importance of Being Earnest, California Love and Christmas Carol and it definitely was, as all of the productions were performed to rave reviews!!
2012 was the Third Year of Creative Arts Theater and what a year did we have with [title of show], WIZARD OF OZ, INTO THE WOODS, NOISES OFF, 13, and OUR FIRST
EVER KID’S HOLIDAY CAMP!
