You will find lots of laughter and family fun in these vignettes, which include: a Christmas play costume emergency, a Mom hoping to decorate a perfect Nativity set, a grandmother reading a traditional (maybe) Christmas story, teenagers trying to throw an "epic" Christmas sweat party, and a family with a surprisingly large and unexpected Christmas present. Beautiful vocal performances are scattered throughout the show. O Holy Nite will have four online performances, December 11, 13, 18, & 20. Friday night shows begin at 7:30 pm and Sunday matinees are at 3 pm,

Charlotte's Web

by Samantha Macher Directed by Lisa Spears Publisher: Dramatic Publishing Co. A CAYT production The tender, funny story of Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; the Zuckerman family; the Arables; and, most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be “a true friend and a good writer.” Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte begins her campaign with the "miracle" of her web in which she writes. And ultimately, Wilbur proves his worth, doing what is most important to Charlotte. This is a beautiful, knowing play about friendship.

Death and Taxes

by Pat Cook (a.k.a. David Patrick Cook) Directed by Amanda Menefee Publisher: Dramatic Publishing Co. Ever wonder what goes on at a small-town city council meeting? This one has turned into a coroner’s jury, looking for a murderer before speculations and the media get out of hand. Not only was a man murdered, but he was an employee of the IRS. Slowly it becomes apparent the entire city council had seen the man, and each of them seems to be hiding something. Who murdered the stranger? Was it Cora Sedgewick, who was still dizzy at the time from stepping on a rake and being thumped in the face with its handle? Or newspaper editor King, who's right on the spot to report the facts, if he could only find a pencil? Or maybe the mayor herself, who was doing her laundry in the back of city hall? Performance dates are April 30th, May 1st & 2nd and May 7th, 8th & 9th Note: All Auditions will be held in Cox Hall, next door to the Theatre Call the CLT office at 864-646-8100 for more information!
