Join our CAST of Supporting Characters

CAST-Creative Arts Students and Teachers-funds visual and performing arts programs at Fort Worth Country Day that would otherwise not be supported. These experiences enhance students' artistic visions, open their minds to the arts world beyond FWCD and engage them in hands-on work with dynamic professionals.

Volunteer Opportunities

Supporting CAST is seeking volunteer reception assistance for the 2018-19 school year. Tasks include plating cookies, setting up tables before events and lite clean up after performances. Contact Pam Darrow or Teri East for information or questions regarding CAST volunteer opportunities.
