COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN SCHOOL THEATRE
CCST exists to teach, expose, challenge, encourage, and involve students in the theatrical arts.
Fall Production, Anne of Green Gables
Adapted by Peter DeLaurier
Synopsis: When aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert send to the orphanage in Nova Scotia for a boy to help them on the farm, they get more than they bargain for. Due to a mix-up, they are instead left with 11-year-old Anne Shirley. Over the course of six years, this romantic, hot-headed, and energetic girl wins their hearts and turns the stodgy, rural Canadian community into a bright world of "kindred spirits." This swift yet theatrical adaptation of the classic novel is an all-ages crowd-pleaser.

Based on the Paramount Pictures motion picture, based on the Hasbro board game Clue.
Adapted by Hunter Foster, Jonathan Lynn, Eric Price, and Sandy Rustin
Synopsis: It's a dark and stormy night, and you've been invited to a very unusual dinner party. Each of the guests has an alias, the butler offers a variety of weapons, and the host is, well . . . dead. So whodunnit? Join the iconic oddballs known as Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock, and Mustard as they race to find the murderer in Boddy Manor before the body count stacks up. Based on the cult classic film and the popular board game, Clue is a madcap comedy that will keep you guessing until the final twist.

The purpose is not only to present a theatrical piece, but to present an opportunity for students to glorify God through their gifts and talents.
Through work on stage and backstage, students develop leadership skills, teamwork, confidence, and a servant’s heart.
A play truly is a sum of all the parts. Excellence is expected in order for the finished production to be a success. And it is so much fun!!
On stage, actors develop their tools— their voices, bodies, and imaginations to clothe the pages of the script in flesh.
Backstage opportunities abound working on costumes, makeup, hair, sets, props, the technical art of sound, lights, video, and crew—the unseen movers who transform the stage throughout the show.
