Our production of Philip Barry’s romantic comedy The Philadelphia Story is now playing through June 5th at CCCT.
Originally made famous by Katherine Hepburn, It tells the story of Philadelphia heiress and socialite Tracy Lord. After getting a divorce from C. K. Dexter Haven, she prepares to marry again. However, in the days before her wedding, Haven and a reporter, posing as her brother’s friend, show up at her doorstep. From there, Tracy is forced to choose among her past love, her present love, and her new love.
Although this mad-cap high society comedy was a smash hit on Broadway, most people remember the Oscar-winning film version which starred Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart.
Director Matthew Phillips promises his show will leave you happy and even a little romantic, too.
“The Philadelphia Story” runs May 20 – June 5 with performances at 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 2:30pm on Sundays. Tickets are $13-15. Group rates are available. Tickets may be purchased online or by calling the box office at 281-335-5228.

Session II is geared towards theatre students age 12 – 18. The focus of this session is on improv, honest reactions, and on making bold and clear choices. “James and the Giant Peach” centers on a young English orphan boy who enters a gigantic, magical peach and has a wild and surreal cross-world adventure with seven magically-altered garden bugs he meets.
