Springboard Season

Wakefield Idol

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!
