CAST 2019 – Info, Apply and Audition

What is CAST?

CAST stands for Creative Arts Service Team. It is an 8-week summer mission team. The members travel together to various Salvation Army locations in the Northeast performing and witnessing about God’s love for all. It is a program of The Salvation Army for Salvationists 18 years and older. Selection to the team is by application and audition. The main emphasis each summer is to put together a theatrical production for touring purposes. Secondly, members teach, lead and mentor children at Salvation Army summer camps, community centers and Corps (Churches).
