Fiddler on the Roof

June 2- 10

Halton Theater


CPCC Sumer Theatre brings a musical theatre tradition to the Halton stage for the first time with Fiddler on the Roof.  Tevye the Dairyman, tries to protect his daughters and his way of life from a changing world.Top of FormBottom of Form Winner of nine Tony Awards when it debuted in 1964, Fiddler on the Roof is the brainchild of Broadway legends. Touching audiences worldwide with its humor, warmth and honesty, this universal show is a staple of the musical theatre canon. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof‘s universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness. With iconic and beloved songs such as “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were a Rich Man” and “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” Fiddler on the Roof is the perfect mix of audience-pleasing humor and heart.

A Chorus Line

June 16 – 24

Halton Theater

CPCC Summer Theatre is happy to bring A Chorus Line to the Halton stage for the first time as the musical celebrates its 40th anniversary year. A Chorus Line is a celebration of those unsung heroes of the American Musical Theatre: the chorus dancers– those valiant, over dedicated, underpaid, highly trained performers who back up the stars and often make them look even more talented than they are. It is also about competition. For everyone, at one time or another, puts his life on the line. We all compete, no matter what business we’re in, for promotion, for attention, for approval and for love. A Chorus Line departs from the usual glossy backstage musical by presenting a true picture of what it’s like to be in the theatre: glamorous, yes, at times, but also tough, heartbreaking and sometimes even tragic.

Ken Ludwig’s A Comedy of Tenors

June 30 – July 9

Pease Auditorium

One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong? It’s 1930s Paris and the stage is set for the concert of the century—as long as producer Henry Saunders can keep Italian superstar Tito Merelli and his hot-blooded wife Maria from causing runaway chaos. Prepare for an uproarious ride, full of mistaken identities, bedroom hijinks, and madcap delight.  Ken Ludwig does the impossible in A Comedy of Tenors he has created a sequel to the his 90’s comic hit Lend Me Tenor that is just as much fun as the original.  “From conception to execution, everything about A Comedy of Tenors hits on all comedic cylinders and, as advertised, is laugh-out-loud funny.” – The News-Hearld,



Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach TYA


June 28 – July 8

Halton Theater


Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach is a fantastical tale of an orphaned boy, his insect friends and their amazing journey across the ocean on a giant peach.Top of FormBottom of Form Featuring a wickedly tuneful score, Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach is a delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure. Filled with conniving aunts, magic potions, human sized insects, and a tremendous peach, we go along with James as u;ses his quick wit and creative thinking to create a new family for himself in the face of hunger, seagulls, sharks and the Empire State Building.  Join us as CPCC Summer theatre brings this exciting adaptation to life on the Halton Stage for the first time.
