Where Did the Idea of Street Scenes Come From? 

Forty-eight years ago, it all started with a group of parent volunteers – including the Kasting, Howland, Thompson, and Nemmers families – who looked to help raise money for Carmel High School. At the time in 1974, there were two separate schools – one for the girls and one for the boys – with which came separate fundraisers for each school. The families thought of combining the schools’ fundraisers into one major event. So in 1974, Street Scenes kicked off with two shows for families who wanted to raise money for the school. 

Over the years, Street Scenes flourished and became a mainstay for students, parents, alumni, and community members. Would our founding families have thought that this is where Street Scenes would be 49 years and nearly $12 million later? They would be proud to know that their efforts have benefitted Carmel Catholic students in unimaginable ways, providing them with countless resources to support their education and growth at Carmel Catholic.

For six decades, Carmel Catholic graduates have offered their citizenship and service to the world. From the classroom to the boardroom and from fields of athletic competition to those of scientific discovery, generations of Carmel Catholic students have left our halls with the ability to understand and contribute to the greater good of society.
