August 14th - 16th, 2020

Judge Knott (CHT's 1st Online Production!!)

by Earl Lewin, directed by Earl Lewin- Always with his finger on the pulse of current events, Lewin focuses his satirical eye on political ambition and its pitfalls in the current climate. How often do we judge rather than accept one another? Why do we sometimes feel we have to lie to get what we want or to hide our mistakes? Judge Knott is a hilarious comedy about human foibles.

Brady Knott is a shoo-in for an appointment to the Supreme Court until an incident from his past turns everything into a circus. Six seasoned actors take us on a hilarious romp while exploring serious contemporary issues." Judge Knott is portrayed by Toph Wallace. Peggy Chiras plays the part of his secretary Barbara. The Judge’s wife Georgia is portrayed by Kathy Jones. Steve Hazzard is Howard Lind, a political advisor and friend to the President. Rhonda Jensen plays Brandy Love, an attractive, wealthy divorcée. Rounding out the dramatic players is Vick Krishna who portrays Samsara, a maintenance staff member and an improbable philosopher.

Jesus Christ Superstar

June 7th - 23nd, 2019

Jesus Christ Superstar

by Andrew Lloyd Webber, directed by Shelagh Grasso

This 1970 rock opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice started as a rock concept album before it made its Broadway debut in 1971. The musical tells the biblical story of Jesus and the last several days of his life. Loosely based on the Gospels, the musical focuses on the personal conflicts between Jesus, his disciples, the people of Israel, and the leadership of Rome. The story is told from the point of view of disciple Judas, and it focuses on Judas’ struggle making the decision to betray Jesus and Jesus’ human psychology, fear, and anger in understanding and accepting his role as both leader and martyr.

A Flea in Her Ear

March 29th - April 14th, 2019

A Flea in Her Ear

by Georges Feydeau, directed by Toph Wallace

A classic French farce by Georges Feydeau adapted by David Ives has a laugh a minute. The premise is simple, Madame Chandebise suspects her husband of cheating, and with the help of her best friend sets out to entrap and catch him. Of course, the plan goes awry, with a host of characters running around and confusing everything and everyone. Mistaken identities, a jealous Spaniard, the crazy family doctor and more will put the audience in stitches, but of course everyone will wind up in the right place in the end – this is a comedy after all!

Watch on the Rhine

January 18th - February 3rd, 2019

Watch on the Rhine

by Lillian Hellman, directed by Mary James

After 20 years of marriage, American born Sara Muller brings her German husband Kurt and their three children to visit her mother and brother just outside Washington D.C. in the late spring of 1940. Kurt has been deeply involved in anti-fascist activities, and the family has been moving around for many years. The visit to the home of the wealthy Farellys should be a restful vacation, but the family idyll is threatened by the presence of Fanny Farelly’s other houseguests, the impoverished Romanian count, Teck de Brancovis and his wife. This classic play by Lillian Hellman brings intrigue, drama and an exploration of the insidious ease with which fascism can infect people’s hearts and minds.
