CAST (Children’s Acting School & Theater)

Creating stars

Patty Hornsveld has taken the north end of Main Avenue and transformed it into a rich performing arts center that lends itself to the art and cultural atmosphere of downtown Fallbrook.

The Mission isn’t just theater—it is a mixture of performing arts training, studio work, and on-stage experience. Where once the theater enjoyed only a cast of older actors, it now hosts a number of youth performances and is the residence for CAST Academy of Dance.

CAST (Children’s Acting School & Theater) holds various acting workshops for children of all ages, including developing a children’s Show Choir, which performs at various local community functions and charity events throughout North County as well as competitions around Southern California. CAST’s performance dance teams have entertained audiences across the United States and have been invited to entertain on Royal Caribbean and Carnival Cruise Lines.

To help facilitate the needs of the Theater and Dance Academy, there is a dancewear and costume shop appropriately called Tu Tu Much Dancewear & Box Office, which is also on North Main Avenue.

Summertime fun for children will include two drama workshops beginning in July. The two workshops will tie into a Broadway stage production performances.

Traditionally in January each year you can find CAST at the local elementary schools volunteering with the After School Acting Projects. All these projects are truly transforming the downtown performing arts to involve the entire community.

The Mission Theatre is located at 231 North Main Avenue, where monthly concerts are also performed
