CLASSIC THEATRE SERIES

CFRT’s Classic Theatre Series offers every 11th graders in Cumberland County an opportunity to see a show at the theatre free of charge!  Whether students see a production by William Shakespeare or a piece of classic American Literature, they leave the theatre with new perspectives and understandings about what they have just read in class and seen performed live onstage.

In 2018-2019 we offered Peter and the Starcatcher in the fall and will offer Trumbo in the spring.

 “They may never witness the beauty of live theatre without this opportunity, and it shows how powerful literature can be when the words come to life on stage. They can ‘see’ the conflicts and the fact that these are the same issues people are facing today.”

CFRTeens presents JUNIE B. JONES THE MUSICAL on tour in March 2019!

Everyone’s favorite first grader is coming to CFRT! Join us for our 2019 Spring Break Boot Camp featuring songs and scenes from Junie B. Jones: The Musical. 

About the show: It’s Junie B.’s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie’s friend, Lucille, doesn’t want to be her best pal anymore and, on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” and first grade has never been more exciting.
