Campus Community Players

The Campus Community Players, under the direction of Damian Ernest, presents a wide variety of productions, including classical work and new plays.

As a college theatre program, which also relies on members of the community in its productions, the primary goal of the program is the education of students. Many students have gone on to professional careers in acting, directing, playwriting, theatre education and theatrical production. This aim of teaching and learning, requires a variety of theatrical genres, periods and styles which reflect the current contemporary theatre landscape.

There are many opportunities to get involved both onstage and off. New faces are always welcome!

Singing in the Rain Jr.

Singing in theRain Jr. LogoAugust 10-11 at 7:30p.m. and August 12 at 2p.m.

This story centers on 1920s Hollywood star performers caught up in the transition from silent films to “talkies”.

It has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline – the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers! In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item, but behind the scenes, things aren't always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina's squeaky voice might be the end of her career in "talking pictures" without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her.

Featuring the popular songs “Singin’ in the Rain”, “Good Morning” and “Make Em’ Laugh” with a mix of comedy and big dance numbers, this show is sure to entertain!
