The Trip to Bountiful
by Horton Foote
September 25 - October 4
The Trip to Bountiful is the poignant story of Mrs. Watts, an aging widow living with her son and daughter-in-law in a three-room flat in Houston, Texas in 1953. Fearing that her presence may be an imposition on others, and chafing under the watchful eye of her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Watts imagines that if she can get away and return to her old home in the town of Bountiful, she is sure to regain her strength, dignity and peace of mind.
The Phantom of the Opera
by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Charles Hart and Richard Stilgoe
November 13 - 22
Dale F. Halton Theater
For almost 30 years Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera has captivated audiences with his retelling of the story of the a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House. Exercising a reign of terror, over all who inhabit it, the Phantom falls madly in love with an innocent soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents. From the roof of the Paris Opera House to the flooded catacombs below, The Phantom of the Opera thrills through one of the most sensational scores ever written for the stage. Truly the “Angel of Music” takes one through the haunting “Music of the Night”, as the “Masquerade” unfolds around us.
I Love a Piano: The Music of Irving Berlin
February 12 - 21
Dale F. Halton Theater
I Love a Piano is the celebration of the music and lyrics of one of America’s most prolific songwriters Irving Berlin. Containing over sixty of Irving Berlin’s most beloved songs, the show includes such classics as “Blue Skies”, “There’s No Business Like Show Business”, “Puttin’ on the Ritz”, “White Christmas”, “God Bless American” and of course “I Love a Piano”. Alternating heartbreaking and hilarious, rousing and reflective, I Love a Piano is a fitting tribute to the man Jerome Kern said had “no place in American music- he is American music”
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
by Tom Stoppard
Part of Sensoria-A Celebration of the Arts
April 8 - 17
Join CPCC Theatre in commemorating the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s passing with our production of the acclaimed modern comedic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead. Tom Stoppard’s play is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm's-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare's play. In Tom Stoppard's best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.
