Children’s After School Theater (C.A.S.T.),  is a community program of First UMC for children in 1st through 12th grade. It fosters positive, imagination-inspired actions while building self-esteem through the arts. It explores writing, developing and producing plays and builds trust and teamwork.

C.A.S.T. sessions are built around the school semesters following the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District calendar.
