Join CPCC Summer Theatre in brining Annie: The Musical to the Halton stage for the first time. Based on the popular comic strip by Harold Gray, Annie has become a world-wide phenomenon and was the winner of seven TONY Awards including Best Musical. The beloved book and score by TONY Award winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin features some of the greatest musical theatre hits ever written including “Tomorrow”. With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find her parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations and even befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. She finds a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

Who else but Bob Fosse and the amazing duo of Kander & Ebb could take a group of murderesses and make them into one of the most popular musicals ever to appear on Broadway. In Roaring Twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap…until he finds out he’s been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream”: fame, fortune and acquittal. This Tony and Oscar award winning musical comes to the Halton stage for the first time.

Winner of the Tony® and Drama Critics Circle Awards for Best Play in 1970, Anthony Shaffer’s Sleuth is the ultimate game of cat-and-mouse played out in a cozy English country house owned by celebrated mystery writer, Andrew Wyke. Invited guest Milo Tindle, a young rival who shares not only Wyke’s love of the game but also his wife, has come to lay claim. Revenge is devised and murders plotted as the two plan the ultimate whodunnit. The New York Post called it “Ingenious skullduggery replete with skillful suspense and inventive tricks.” The New York Times found it “Clever, intricate…It is good, neat, clean and bloody fun, and I most cordially recommend it.” Sleuth is sure to join the ranks of CPCC Summer Theatre’s most popular mystery productions like Wait Until Dark and Deathtrap.
