2018-19 CPCC Theatre Schedule
Becket or The Honour of God by Jean Anouilh. September 28- Oct 7 Halton Theatre
The Church and Crown collide when King Henry II names his reluctant friend Thomas Becket the Archbishop of Canterbury. Can their longstanding friendship withstand the clash of church versus state? Becket presents an epic showdown between two men caught between loyalty to man and loyalty to God. Can either of them survive? The exciting Peter O’Toole/Richard Burton film comes alive on the Halton stage this Fall.
Music of the Night: An Andrew Lloyd Webber Revue Oct – 26- Nov 4 Pease Aud.
Join CPCC Theatre in celebrating two great events this October. Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 70th birthday and the final CPCC Theatre production in Pease Auditorium before the Library is torn down for renovation. Experience this wonderful new revue of the classic hit songs from the man who brought us Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Cats and The Phantom of the Opera. You won’t want to miss this dual celebration.
Gypsy- Feb- 15-24 Halton Theatre
The Arthur Laurents, Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim musical Gypsy comes to the Halton stage for the first time this winter. Considered by many to the greatest of all American musicals, Gypsy tells the story of Gypsy Rose Lee and her indomitable mother. Often called the King Lear of musicals, Mama Rose’s Turn is a tour de force that climaxes an evening of musical theatre filled with amazing tunes like Everything’s Coming Up Roses, Let Me Entertain You and the show stopping You Gotta Get a Gimmick. Gypsy promises to be a night of theatre to remember for a life time.
Our Town- April 5-14 Halton Theatre
Our Town “…is probably the finest play ever written by an American”- Edward Albee. With a bare stage, a couple of chairs and a wise old stage manager, Thornton Wilder created a timeless drama that speaks to the heart of the human experience. Since 1938 this funny and moving journey through the lives of the people of Grover’s Corners has captivated audiences all over the world. Help us celebrate over 80 years of excellence as part of the Sensoria Festival this Spring.
