The Philadelphia Story opens Thursday, March 12!

Clayton Community Theatre is proud to present The Philadelphia Story by Philip Barry, directed by Heather Sartin, running March 12-22. 

This 1939 Broadway hit comedy centers on Tracy Lord, the headstrong and spoiled daughter of the privileged Philadelphia Lords. Preparing for her second wedding, Tracy finds herself pulled in different directions by her fiancee, her ex-husband, and an attractive reporter sent by a gossip weekly to cover the events. As the wedding day dawns, Tracy learns a number of things about all three men, and in the process learns some things about herself.

The Cat and the Canary by John Willard, directed by Erin Struckhoff
November 12-22, 2020
This 1922 comedy-thriller starts with the reading of the old man's will at midnight in the library of his spooky mansion, and proceeds through a night of scares and surprises for the six very interesting potential heirs gathered there. 

August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, directed by Nada Vaughn
March 11-21, 2021
This Tony-nominated 1982 classic drama deals with issues of race, art, religion, and the historic exploitation of black recording artists by white producers. 

The Member of the Wedding by Carson McCullers, directed by Jim Danek
June 10-20, 2021
This 1950 play, adapted by the author from a 1946 novel, has been described as a "very funny, very dark" story on themes of racial and sexual identity and "why people exclude others and what happens when they do." 

Season tickets will go on sale in Summer 2020!
