Mark your calendars for CTA’s 2013-2014 season!
Fall production: Snow White, A Grimm Brothers Fairy Tale
Written by local playwright and CTA alumnus Dylan Roche
Performances: October 11th to 20th, 2013
In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won’t shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand…and his name is Shrek. Full of all-new songs, SHREK THE MUSICAL is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!

Spring production: Pippi Longstocking
Performance dates: April 4th to 13th, 2014
Pippi is the high spirited, warm hearted incarnation of every child’s dream of freedom and power. Dressed in strange clothes and living with her horse and pet monkey, she possesses supernatural strength and untold wealth. When Pippi is not dancing with burglars who are trying to steal the gold coins given to her by her father, she is at the circus fighting the strongest man in the world or playing tag with policemen. And now the rollicking adventures that put her at odds with the demands of life in a small town fill an effervescent, uproariously funny family musical starring the world’s most popular freckled faced girl!
