Hamlet by Candlelight

Perhaps the greatest play ever written in the English language, Hamlet comes to life on the CTC stage. The ghost of Hamlet's father gives him one mission - avenge his death and kill his brother, the murderer, Claudius. Hamlet's life is crumbling around him, and he must decide where he stands.

Our troupe of improvisers make up scenes and songs on-the-spot, vying for your love, affections, and votes as they compete to become The Micetro!

This Christmas classic returns to the CTC stage. Three spirits work to convince Ebenezer Scrooge to embrace the spirit of Christmas. From the Fezziwigs to Tiny Tim and the Cratchits, Scrooge sees the joy of Christmases past, present, and future on his journey to a better life. This heart-warming season favorite is filled with carols and cheer. Perfect for the whole family!

Note on Tickets

We often have excited audience members waiting for a sold-out show. In the case of a sold-out performance,

if you have not arrived or been in contact with us by showtime, your seats may be released to standby patrons.

Seating

Seating is open admission, not reserved seats. Seats are first come, first served, so if you are coming with a larger party, we recommend coming early to get seats together.

What is a Preview?

Previews are exactly like the other performances. After preview weekend, the cast goes back into rehearsal to refine the show a bit more. If you come to a preview, you are the first to get to see the show, and the tickets are the same as our Pay-What-You-Can nights!

Seating

Seating is first come, first served.

 

We suggest arriving 25 - 15 minutes before showtime.
