Join us during this extraordinary production season by attending one – or more – of the following 2017 – 2018 performances:

The Bridges of Madison County

by Robert James Waller

September 22 – October 1
Central Campus, Dale F. Halton Theater

Based on the best-selling novel, and developed by the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning creative team of Jason Robert Brown (“The Last Five Years” and “Parade”) and Marsha Norman (“The Secret Garden” and “The Color Purple”), “The Bridges of Madison County” captures the lyrical expanse of America's heartland along with the yearning entangled in the eternal question "What if...?" Just like the Meryl Streep film of the same name, this sweeping romance about the roads we travel, the doors we open and the bridges we dare to cross will leave audiences breathless. With a soaring score and a heartbreaking story, “The Bridges of Madison County” is a touching and powerful start to CPCC Theatre’s 2017-2018 season.

The Crucible

by Arthur Miller

October 27 – November 5
Central Campus, Pease Auditorium

CPCC Theatre is proud to bring Arthur Miller’s classic American play “The Crucible” to the Pease stage. Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, this exciting drama about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society. “The devil has returned to Broadway with the power to make the strong tremble. Be afraid, be very afraid.” - The New York Times


by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber

February 16 – 25
Central Campus, Dale F. Halton Theater

Webber’s Tony awarding-winning musical “Evita” comes to the Halton Theater stage for the first time. With a strong cast of characters torn from the fiery pages of Latin American history, “Evita” represents one of Lloyd Webber’s most-beloved scores, combining Latin, jazz, pop and more traditional influences. With such well known songs as “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” “Buenos Aires” and “Another Suitcase, In Another Hall,” “Evita” has captured audience’s hearts around the world.

On Golden Pond*

by Ernest Thompson

April 6 – 15
Central Campus, Pease Auditorium

“On Golden Pond” is Ernest Thompson’s love story about Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. This touching, funny and warmly perceptive study of a spirited and lovable elderly couple facing their twilight years received some of the most powerful critical and popular acclaim of any new playwright’s debut in Broadway history.
