TADA presents 'Casper & the Haunted Mansion'

The TALE: Tehachapi Art, Literature and Entertainment


February 15, 2020

TADA Acting Studio’s Theatre Creators Kids are at it again.

We are proud to announce our fourth Theatre Creators production since Tehachapi Academy of Dramatic Arts (TADA) opened its doors in 2018. This is a strong cast of 12 actors ranging in ages from 9-17, many of whom have been with us from the start. In “Casper & The Haunted Mansion” a group of orphans and the caretakers who have inherited the land they live on, find their way to a new definition of family.

Show times for “Casper & The Haunted Mansion” are on Saturday, March 7 at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. at Mountain Bible Church 630 Maple St., Tehachapi.

This gorgeous venue even allows us to offer you concessions in a special way. You can pre-order and have them ready for you at intermission.

Tickets for adults are $15, students $7 and kids under 5 are 1 cent. Ticket sales help keep our little school alive. Thank you for your support.

Tickets can be purchased in advance at to receive discounted rates.

Thank you for continuing to make it possible for us to offer these creative opportunities for our youth by supporting this “fundraiser” show! Fundraiser items and souvenirs will be for sale in the lobby.

The show runs about an hour and a half.

Tehachapi Academy of Dramatic Arts’ Theatre Creators programs are improvisation based. We believe that actors who can think on their feet in improvisation, and on stage not only become strong performers, but strong, self-confidant, well-spoken humans in any path they choose to follow.

Our Theatre Creators programs run from 12 to 16 weeks long. Students enroll in a weekly class during which we improvise, work on their craft as actors and create our show. Our current production was created from the brilliant imaginations of our cast and written by Director Dawnnie Mercado-Genochio and Assistant Director Bradley Gallella.

Tehachapi Academy of Dramatic Arts strives to keep our classes affordable at $55-$65 a month with a wide-variety of options in the arts.

See you at the show and see you in class. Ongoing theatre classes are continuing for April and May, as well as our next session of Theatre Creators Kids beginning soon. Learn how to become a part of the next cast by logging into or following us on Facebook.
