Anytime (Virtual Event) - Not Quite Live at CCT

Not Quite Live at CCT is a collection of variety acts that were performed, filmed, and submitted by CCT actors and friends between May and July 2020. The variety show gave community members a chance to share their artistic talents during the Covid-19 stay-at-home orders. Acts include; singing, dancing, dramatic reads and others.

Now - April. 30 (Virtual Event) - CCT's Adventures of Little Daisy

In fall 2020, three casts of actors got together once a week, over the course of four weeks, to rehearse a small melodrama production. Face coverings were worn during rehearsals and performances. The Adventures of Little Daisy is a comedic, over-the-top production about Little Daisy, her caregiver, a set of evil Villains, a Hero and many more!

Now - April 30 (Virtual Event) - CCT's King Arthur

Arthena (daughter of King Arthur) is tired of her father spending weeks away from home on dangerous quests. She's certain the only way to keep her father at her side is to prevent him from ever becoming King in the first place. With a well-mixed potion, Arthena transports herself back in time where she meets her father as a young boy.

Now - April 30 (Virtual Event) - CCT's Beauty and the Beast

Based on the original story from the mid 1700's, this retelling of Beauty and the Beast combines fantasy with period appropriate costumes and historic plot twists. Beauty lives with her father and sisters in a small merchant village by the sea. When the family fortune is lost, Beauty and her father set sail to find it - only to find themselves shipwrecked on an island occupied by a hideous beast.

Now - April 30 (Virtual Event) - CCT's Homer Price

It's the early 1950's and Homer lives an enjoyable, yet uneventful life, until...he is left alone in the diner with his friend to make donuts. Hilarity ensues as the donut machine kicks into overdrive, the most famous TV Heroes come to town, and some prized-items disappear. It's up to Homer and his friend Donna to solve the mystery of the missing items and return the diner back to its original enjoyable atmosphere! 

Now - April 30 (Virtual Event) - CCT's The Jungle Book

A wolf-pack in search of a new leader, a comedic bear, a level-headed panther, a tiger who thinks she's a psychoanalyst, a jack-rabbit trainer, and a snake who plays the blues, team up with Mowgli in this comedic retelling of the original story. Shere-Khan, the tiger, is trying to take over the wolf pack, but Mowgli (the only jungle being from the human village) isn't about to let that happen!
