Children's Musical Theatre Workshops
Registration is now open for the Spring 2018 Workshop!

The Catholic Education Foundation of Ottawa proudly presents Children’s Musical Theatre Workshops. These workshops are open to all children in Grades 3 to 6, even those who do not attend an Ottawa Catholic school. No experience necessary! 100% of the proceeds from the camp registration fees go towards alleviating poverty in OCSB schools.

Come and experience our dynamic musical theatre classes which include acting, singing and choreography.

Classes are delivered by the same team that produced the hit CEFO productions of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Music Man, Annie, Anything Goes, Anne of Green Gables, Once Upon a Mattress, and Cinderella.

Registration forms are also available at all OCSB schools. If you have questions or concerns about your registration or payment, or wish to pay by cash or cheque, please contact:

This unique social event welcomed parents, employees and Trustees of the Ottawa Catholic School Board, corporate sponsors, educational partners, social service agencies, the Archdiocese, and other community members. Guests enjoyed a live and silent auction, along with balloon and raffle sales -- all for a great cause. Staff and students involved in the Ottawa Catholic School Board's Children's Theatre Workshop entertained guests with delightful songs celebrating Canada's 150th Birthday. Fun was had by all! Thank you to everyone for your generosity and support.
