A busy 2014

Posted by admin 23 Feb 2014 Comments Off

We’ve been so busy at CCT that we’ve been remiss at keeping our website up to date. So, here’s what we’ve been up to since our last post. In January/February CCT presented two One-Acts “The Exquisite Hour” & “Next”.  Currently, CCT is gearing up to present it’s next show “The Foreigner” by Larry Shue and directed by David Stock. David directed this show for CCT over 20 years ago, and is excited about bringing a few modern twists to the story of a meek science-fiction magazine proof reader, who finds himself in a back woods fishing lodge in Georgia.

After 50 years on the board of directors for Cranbrook Community Theatre, Bud Abbott has resigned. Bud attended his last board meeting, CCT’s Annual General Meeting, on Tuesday, September 17th. Bud was presented with keys to Studio/Stage Door in honour of his many years of services.

In 1973, Bud and Cornel Sawchuck spearheaded the movement to save the Masonic Temple (now known as the Studio/Stage Door) from the wrecking ball. The City of Cranbrook turned the building over to the Community Theatre who has since acted as stewards of the building.

Announcing Cranbrook Community Theatre’s 2013/14 Season

Posted by admin 29 Aug 2013 Comments Off

The upcoming season features a mix of drama, comedy, and evenings of one-acts.

CCT kicks it all off with “Visiting Mr. Green” written by Jeff Baron and directed by Tanya Laing Gahr. Corporate executive Ross Gardiner is charged with reckless driving after narrowly missing 86-year-old widower Mr. Green. Gardiner is ordered to visit Mr. Green every week for the next six weeks. The two men start off being resentful of the situation and as the show develops family secrets are revealed and old wounds are opened. “Visiting Mr. Green” runs November 29th-December 14th.

In late January 2014, CCT brings two one-acts to the Stage Door Theatre.  “The Exquisite Hour” by Stewart Lemoine features first time director Elizabeth Ross. Set on a summer evening in 1962, “The Exquisite Hour” introduces the audience to bachelor, Zachary Teal, who over the hour, and a couple of glasses of lemonade, listens to the sales pitch of encyclopaedia saleswomen Helen Darimont. The second one act, directed by Bob McCue, is set in the exam room of an army recruiting office. Terrence McNally’s “Next” is the story of a middle-aged, down on his luck, divorced father who has mistakenly been drafted and the, by the book, career officer who won’t give him a break.

The final show of the season is “The Foreigner” by Larry Shue and directed by David Stock. Painfully shy Charlie is left in a rural Georgia fishing lodge by his friend “Froggy” who tells the locals Charlie is from a foreign country and doesn’t speak English. Left on his own, and assumed to be a “foreigner”, Charlie is privy to the secrets and plans of the locals and that’s when the fun begins. The Foreigner hits the CCT stage in April 2014.

“I’m really pleased with the 2013/14 season,” said Production Manager Jennifer Inglis. “The selection of shows will appeal to a wide variety of tastes while providing a creative challenge for the directors, actors, and crew members.”

A general casting call will be held on Monday, September 9 at 7:00 at the Stage Door.

The public and all Cranbrook Community Theatre members are invited to CCT’s Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, September 17th at 7:00 p.m. in the Stage Door Theatre.
