Thank you for making our 2013-2014 Season a success!
Clayton Community Theatre proudly announces our 2014-2015 season.
New for this season: we will be performing each production four days a week – Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 8:00 and Sunday afternoons at 2:00. This allows those whose weekends are already full to enjoy our productions on Thursdays. Also, we will run one of our productions (The Lion in Winter) for three weeks rather than two. Both of these changes (three-week run and Thursday performances) are to some extent experiments: if you like them, please let us know!
The plays for the 2014-2015 season are:
Set during Christmas 1183, this play dramatizes the gamesmanship between King Henry II of England, his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine (whom he has had imprisoned since 1173), their three surviving sons Richard, Geoffrey, and John, and their Christmas Court guest, King Philip II of France, who was the son of Eleanor's ex-husband, Louis VII of France. This is the play that won Rosemary Harris a Tony award and was made into an Academy Award-winning movie.
Macbeth by William Shakespeare, directed by Nancy Crouse
Widely considered one of Shakespeare’s darkest and most powerful works, Macbeth dramatizes the corrosive psychological and political effects produced when evil is chosen as a way to fulfill the ambition for power. CCT’s first production of the Scottish play is also the CCT directing debut of acclaimed St. Louis director and actress Nancy Crouse.
The Skin of Our Teeth by Thornton Wilder, directed by Joe O’Connor
This Pulitzer prize-winning play by one of America’s best-known playwrights presents a three-part story of the Antrobus family of Excelsior, New Jersey, as an allegory about the life of mankind. Joe O’Connor, who directed the critically-acclaimed Room at the Inn for CCT last season, returns to direct again.
