Entertainment is likely in his future, says Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) student Cameron Chang and it appears that he has the talent for such a career path.

His performance in the lead role of Jean Valjean in CCA’s production of the musical “Les Misérables” last spring brought standing ovations. It also brought him into the running for the new high school musical theater knock-out competition, The Ben Vereen Awards, when he was invited to compete as one of the top high school males in a leading role for the 2014 school year. CCA student Sam Tullie was also nominated as a top female lead for her “Les Misérables” role as Fantine, but illness prevented her from competing.
