Reading Stage


CCCT is pleased to announce the return of its popular Reading Stage, this time as a Zoom series for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.

Begun in 2015, Reading Stage offers an opportunity for audiences to focus on hearing some of the most thrilling works in contemporary theatre. Each new theatrical project begins at some point with a “table read” as the actors and creative team get together and read the script which forms the basis for the work they’ll do to bring a text to life. Reading Stage brings some of the best actors and riveting scripts together to create an unforgettable evening of theatre.

All Zoom Reading Stage productions are free (suggested donation $10), but you must RSVP to receive the link to the performance.
