CTC proudly announces our 46th season of plays.
Our much anticipated return to the Nancy Niles Sexton stage includes comedy, farce, adventure,a unique look into social inequities through drama , new works and of course Shakespeare.
Our season kicks off with The Children’s Hour, a wonderful Lillian Hellman play that has relevance that spans the decades, followed by the mischievous David Ives and his unique and side splitting translation of a Corneille comedy: The Liar.
We are also thrilled to continue our IDEAS series in January with a thought provoking staged reading of a new play by the fantastic and will feature staff and students of CTC, as well as some local talent.
Our Young Company will present a delightfully femenist adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s time-honored tale, The Hound Of the Baskervilles: A Comic Thriller Starring Shirley Holmes and Jennie Watson (Adapted by Kent R. Brown).
Of course, our Young Playwrights will once again produce their magical festival in February. Finally, rounding out the year will be the beloved annual Young American Shakespeare Festival, which will delve into both the comical and tragic sides of romantic love and language as we present Loves Labours Lost and Romeo and Juliet. The third title included in the festival is a radical retelling of the Greek Mythology: Euridyce. This Sarah Ruhl adaptation gives us the chance to explore themes of love and loss in a more abstract lens, and is sure to be a highlight of our season.
Come celebrate the incredible actors of CTC and relish in the return of communal storytelling. For the first time in a long time I am very happy to again say “ We’ll see you at the theatre”!
