About Us

Angela Smith and Scott Shakir decided to start CharACTer Curtain Calls so that students in the area have the opportunity to be exposed to the excitement of live theatre. During CharACTer Curtain Calls’ first season, a successful Aladdin Jr. was staged. Willy Wonka JR was staged in their 2nd season, with Jungle Book KIDS and High School Musical JR taking to the stage in 2017-18. Angela Smith and Scott Shakir collaborated on a number of theatrical productions (Annie Jr., Aladdin Jr., Twinderella, Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr., and the Jungle Book for Kids) for children of elementary age while teaching at Sparta Public School.  CCCalls was fortunate to have Rosemary Charlton onboard as a Board member and Musical Director for the first two seasons.

Adele Lasson joined CharACTer Curtain Calls when she retired from a high school counselling/teaching career at Laurier S.S., in June 2017. She has stage experience (music and drama) from the University of Regina, Princess Avenue Playhouse, and the West Elgin Dramatic Society, where she also coached students in theatrical productions. Angela and Scott are thrilled to tap into Adele’s enthusiasm and theatrical experience! Angela will be teaching at Kettle Creek P.S. in September, while Scott retired from a long teaching career at Sparta P.S. in June, 2015.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to advance education in the field of dramatic arts, by offering structured classes and events to children and youth, and by providing opportunities for these students to publicly exhibit, present, or perform dramatic works to develop their skills in conjunction with these learning activities.


Our Board of Directors includes Angela Smith, Adele Lasson, and Scott Shakir.
