CBA Drama is proud to announce the 2017-2018 Theatre Season. This year, we are especially celebrating the Spring Musical, now having its 30th anniversary!
This year’s Senior High Fall Drama, one of George Bernard Shaw’s best-loved plays, Pygmalion, follows the adventure of an intellectual but ill-mannered phonetics professor, Henry Higgins, as he resolves to transform the streetwise, Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle into a refined lady simply by polishing her accent. Pygmalion is a time-honored tale of social class and cultural inequality presented in a hilarious comedy of manners. Presented in the CBA Chapel, Thursday-Saturday, Nov. 2-4, with a special “Dinner Theatre” performance on the 4th!
The upcoming Junior High Fall Drama is based on the beloved holiday film that has made audiences laugh for over a decade. Elf Jr. follows big-hearted Buddy the Elf on his quest to New York City to find his birth father and his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list, and his half-brother doesn’t believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his family and to help them, and New York, believe in the true meaning of Christmas. Presented in the CBA LGI, Friday- Sunday, Nov. 17-19.
A Chorus Line, the iconic ‘singular sensation’ that captures the spirit and intensity of a Broadway chorus audition, is coming to CBA Drama! A Chorus Line is a testament to the human spirit and the ability to push through hardship in the hopes of chasing your dreams. Filled with memorable numbers like “What I Did For Love”, “At the Ballet”, and “I Hope I Get It”, as well as a complex blending of song, dance and compelling drama, A Chorus Line is a beautiful tribute to the over-worked, underpaid highly trained performers of Broadway, as well as the American musical itself. Presented in the Nottingham High School Auditorium, Friday and Saturday, March 23-24.
Finally, the season will conclude with the annual CBA Student Drama Showcase. The Showcase returns with another year filled with four plays written by the Creative Writing class, performed and directed by the students of the Drama class, as well as monologues, improv, and other fun surprises! Presented in the CBA LGI, Friday, May 11.
