Construction and remodeling work at the Cherokee Community Center, coupled with hectic late fall schedules, have forced the Cherokee Community Theater Board to change the time frame for their first production of the 2008-2009 season.
Construction work is now wrapping up and the facility now sports a new lighting system, a fantastic new sound system, and new heating and air conditioning systems, all of which should greatly enhance the quality of productions staged in that venue.
This year marks the 50th year of the Cherokee Community Theater, and they have lined up a great schedule of plays. First up will be the production of "Gin Game," with performances planned for Jan. 15, 16, 17, 23, 24 and 25 (Sun. matinee), 2009.
The spring production in March will be Neil Simon's classic "The Odd Couple."
On Saturday April 25, 2009, a 50th Anniversary Gala will be held, with an evening of food and fellowship celebrating the highlights of the Cherokee Community Theater's history of quality local theater productions.
The evening will include a catered meal, followed by a jaunt down memory lane, reminiscing about memorable plays from past seasons. Make plans to join CCCT members for this wonderful evening.
The summer production is set for the end of June, when the endearing, heart-warming musical "Annie" will be presented.
The CCCT Board thanks the community for their generous and continued support throughout the past 50 years, and hope that everyone will be able to join them in making this another memorable season of quality, "home grown" theater productions for the Cherokee area.
CCT Board members include Wayne Morris, Jackie Courtright, Penny Pingrey, Gene Galvin, Tony Puffett, Noelle Puffett, Andy Linn, Dave Zelle, Sherry Held, Jomi Anderson, Ryan Brown, Mollie Laughlin and Rick Angell.
