History of C.A.S.T.

Sharon DeArmon's service to Tampa children's drama began nearly a 40 years ago at Temple Heights Christian, a private school in Temple Terrace, where she taught drama and hosted a summer acting camp for two years. In 1997 Mrs. DeArmon realized she was being called to serve the community.

For the next decade her popular drama program, Acting Up For Him, increased in size so rapidly that the productions annually outgrew venues. The Vineyard, Narrated Park District, Carrollwood Players Theatre, Northside Assembly of God, Grace Family Church, and Van Dyke United Methodist Church have all contributed to the development of C.A.S.T.

Mrs. DeArmon has built her program by challenging students, parents, staff and herself to reach a little higher each year. She has introduced new elements to her productions as she and her students were ready. Through C.A.S.T., Mrs. DeArmon continues to offer excellent creative arts instruction to students and alumni, as well as quality dramatic productions to the community.
