2015-2016 Season Schedule

Caribbean Community Theatre’s 31st season opens in November with My Three Angels, a comedy; followed by 9 to 5 – The Musical by Dolly Parton (February); Rumors, a farce by Neil Simon (March and April); A Raisin in the Sun, an award-winning play (May), and Smile Orange, a Caribbean comedy, in June.

IMG_0063 IMG_0111My Three Angels (from the French play Cuisine des Anges by Albert Husson) begins on Christmas Eve in the tropical prison colony of Cayenne in French Guiana. Felix, a hopeless storekeeper, is fearfully awaiting the owner’s arrival. Providence has given Felix and his family three guardian angels – three convicts! In no time they have cooked Christmas lunch (and Felix’s books) and gotten into lots of other mischievous activities that will have you howling with laughter.

This play is directed by Fred Handleman, and features a cast of new performers and CCT regulars: Michael Baker, Madeleine Borth, Tony Emanuel, Paul Knipler, Tyler Olson, Robin Seila, Rahul Sethia, Glen Wells, Marie Elise Witmer, and Michael Wright. Performances are Friday and Saturday evenings, November 6 through 21 at 8 PM, with a Matinee on Sunday, November 15 at 4 PM.


Auditions for 9 to 5 – The Musical will be held on Monday and Tuesday, November 23 & 24, 2015 at 7 PM. The book by Patricia Resnick, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton, tells the story of three female co-workers who concoct a plan to get even with their sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical boss. As they conspire to take control of the company, they learn there’s nothing they can’t do, even in a man’s world. The production will be directed by Eileen Bishop Des Jardins and Jamile Smith, with music direction by Patrick Baron. 9 to 5 – The Musical will be performed over three weekends between February 5 and February 20, 2016.

Rumors is a comedy written by award-winning playwright Neil Simon. At a large townhouse, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of farce. They arrive for their friends’ tenth wedding anniversary, only to discover the host lies unconscious and unresponsive in his bedroom and his wife is nowhere to be found. The first guests to arrive must get “the story straight” before the other guests show up. As the confusion and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity. “Neil Simon makes people laugh a lot!” – USA Today. Director Michael Baker will hold auditions in January 2016. Performances will be held March 25 through April 9.


Lorraine Hansberry’s award-winning play A Raisin in the Sun, directed by Lionel Downer and Sylvia Smith Brady, will run for seven performances between May 6 and May 21, 2016. Set on Chicago’s south side during the 1950’s, the play revolves around the divergent dreams of and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family. Mama dreams of moving to a decent home. Her son dreams of buying a liquor store and being his own man. Her young, liberated daughter dreams of medical school. This powerful drama is built on sacrifice, heartbreak, trust, love and mama’s heroic struggle to keep the family together. Best Play of the Year, New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award. “Pivotal play in the history of the American Black Theatre.” – Newsweek.


CCT’s final production this season will be Smile Orange, a Caribbean comedy written by the late Trevor Rhone, to be directed by Opal Palmer Adisa, with performances June 10 through June 25, 2016. This popular play is a hilarious romp through a tourist-trap hotel by a well-known award-winning Jamaican playwright. “A savage little comedy.” – Sunday Telegraph. “A rollicking slapstick satire.” – Washington Star.
