When the Alien Comes to Town
Published on Aug 12, 2013
This one-act play, including script, acting and production, was a collaborative effort created by CASP kids, with the help of CASP staff. The play was written and filmed during the summer of 2013, entirely on location at the CASP facilities in Norman, OK.

The revenue grossed for this film by far exceeded the production budget. Additionally, film critics around Norman gave this film ten thumbs up.

Special effects done by Amanda Elliott and Sara Weaver

The Community After School Program (CASP) of Norman provides a safe, supervised before and after school environment for school-age children who would otherwise be left unsupervised while their parents begin or complete their workday. CASP provides before and after school care to more than 700 elementary children in 16 programs in the Norman Public School system.

The Cranium Crew is a tutoring program offered to children in CASP. Tutors are paired one-on-one with an elementary student and meet at the school site twice a week for 30 minutes.
Brenda Birdsong is the Director of Child Services for CASP, Inc., which in January 2013 had 92 mentors/tutors.
