Did you know that unlike many other theater organizations, CCTL starts to build their sets less than one week before we open?

This means the entire rehearsal process is done without a stage until six days before opening night. Those six days are commonly known in the theatrical world as "Hell Week", and boy do we know it.

It is a challenge for the entire crew, designers and cast. Although we do not choose this insanely short period of time, we have managed it for  decades.

Thankfully we are no longer challenged by the restrictions from COVID.

The regulations are constantly in flux..... but as always nothing holds us back.
