Two shows planned for CCT
“Tradition” and “Fairy Tales” are on the marquee at Collingswood Community Theatre!
Collingswood Community Theatre is thrilled to announce it has retained the rights to produce the much-beloved, classic musical Fiddler on the Roof! Because of its huge popularity with touring companies, this show is rarely available – but now, it will be seen onstage at the Scottish Rite on October 12, 13 and 19 through 21. Save the date for this moving Broadway musical.
In the little village of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Fiddler on the Roof has touched audiences around the world with its humor, warmth and honesty. The universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness.
The show features a star turn in Tevye, among the most memorable roles in musical theatre. Its celebrated score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, features songs loved the world over: “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were A Rich Man” and “Matchmaker,” to name a few.
Group sales reservations (groups of 10 or more) are available immediately. Contact Dale at firstname.lastname@example.org or 609-217-4691.
For those interested in performing in the show, auditions will be held in August. Contact Mary Baldwin at email@example.com to be placed on the audition list.
The summer offering by CCT will be the timeless, yet relevant, Into the Woods, performed in CCT’s summer home, the Ballroom at the Scottish Rite on July 11 through 13.
The most popular of Stephen Sondheim’s works, this show is a fractured fairy tale including an ambivalent Cinderella, a blood- thirsty Little Red Ridinghood, a Prince Charming with a roving eye and a witch...who raps.
When a baker and his wife learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell.
Everyone’s wish is granted at the end of act one, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. What begins a lively irreverent fantasy in the style of The Princess Bride becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.
