CPCC Theatre Brings “The Crucible” to the Pease Auditorium Stage Oct. 27 – Nov. 5, Student Tickets $5!

CPCC Theatre is excited to bring Arthur Miller’s classic play “The Crucible” to the Pease Auditorium stage Oct. 27 – Nov. 5.

When a group of young girls is found dancing in the woods, and immediately fall ill, no earthly cause can be determined. However, the citizens of Salem suspect that some more sinister force may be at hand. As long-held grudges turn to violent disputes, humiliating secrets are exposed and disseminated, and the line between truth and pretense becomes increasingly blurry, the citizens’ dogged determination to root out evil becomes more dangerous than the evil itself.

Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible,” remains as relevant as ever, and carries with it a stern warning: in every community torn by suspicion, the most dangerous threat may be the community itself.

“The Bridges of Madison County,” September 22 – October 1, Dale F. Halton Theater
Jason Robert Brown and Marsha Norman’s “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.

CPCC Theatre is excited to wrap up its 2015-2016 season with Tom Stoppard’s “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead,” April 8 – 17, in Pease Auditorium.

Considered Stoppard’s best-known work, the play follows the duo of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, a Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy, who 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 the two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.

The timing of the production couldn’t be more perfect; April 2016 marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. As a result, the troupe’s performance of “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead,” is part of a larger, global celebration slated to recognize the Great Bard’s passing.
