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,
