A one-woman show that illuminates and celebrates the life of Erma Bombeck. Heartwarming and funny, a loving tribute to the famous beloved humorist. Erma captured the frustrations of generations of women struggling with home and family and women’s freedoms, asking “If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What am I Doing in the Pits?” From the writers of Red Hot Patriot (past CTC show). New play written 2016.

Hilarious and touching musical comedy. There’s a new tenant at Armadillo Acres – and she’s wreaking havoc all over Florida's most exclusive trailer park. When Pippi the stripper on the run, comes between the Dr. Phil-loving, agoraphobic Jeannie and her tollbooth collector husband – the storms begin to brew! “If you like your flamingos plastic and your humor raunchy, The Great American Trailer Park Musical is right up your double-wide.” Betty, Linoleum, Duke, and Pickles will have audience keeling over with laughter. Written 2006.
by Qui Nguyen | September 22 – October 15, 2017
Cyrano’s Theatre boldly goes where a generation of dungeon masters has gone before, to tell the story of Agnes who loses herself in a Dungeons & Dragons game to understand her deceased sister Tilly (and herself). A comedic riff on nerd culture with cheeky pop-culture nostalgia. Alice and Tilly’s D&D friends role-play adventures in the dark comedy the NY Times describes it as “Deceptively breezy and rather ingenious.” New play written 2015.
by William Shakespeare | October 27 – November 19, 2017
Much Ado About Nothing is widely considered to be Shakespeare's best comedy. This joyful play combines mistaken identities and robust merriment,
with honor and court politics. Benedick and Beatrice battle their love with a merry war of wits, while Claudio and Hero’s romance is challenged by
rumor and deceit. Will love triumph with two happy marriages? A memorable masterpiece! Written 1599.

Can Nancy bring fancy flair to her role, even though it isn’t what she wanted? Written 2012.

REGIONAL PREMIERE! Based on the astonishing true story of the 1914 Christmas Truce during World War I, when British and German soldiers stopped fighting from the trenches to celebrate the beloved holiday together.
