The New Season is Underway (CCPT)

The 6 week 2008 season of Culver City Public Theatre (CCPT) began last Saturday. The Childrens' Popcorn Theatre presentation of Sluefoot Sue and Pecos Bill, written and directed by Heidi Dotson opened CCPT's 10th anniversary season. It is a rollicking, hilarious 1-hour journey through the old west and the good guys do come out on top at the end. It will run every Saturday and Sunday at 12:00 noon though August 24.

The mainstage performance was Oscar Wilde's The Ideal Husband directed by Gregg Brevoort. The fine performances by an outstanding cast were augmented by spectacular costumes. Husband will run 2 more weekends at 2:00 p.m., closing on August 3. It will be followed for 3 weeks, starting August 9, by To Kill a Mockingbird, directed by John Glass and Maria Turnmeyer. The Ancient One will be appearing in that production as Judge Taylor.

Hopefully, I can post photos next week from this coming weekend's performances of Sluefoot. . . and Ideal. . . Below, I do offer one photo from last night's rehearsal of Mockingbird.

(L to R) Zander Aeroff (Jem), Billy Shaffer (Dill), Remy Beland (Scout) and Dean Edward (Atticus Finch)

More CCPT posts will follow as the season progresses.
