HAMLET

Written by William Shakespeare

Susan Felder, director

CCM takes on one of Shakespeare’s most classic tragedies. Something is rotten in his hometown – and Hamlet has returned from college to find himself in the middle of a deadly game of cat and mouse with his uncle, the King.  Shakespeare’s thriller plunges us into the madness of family disillusionment, friendship betrayed, lost romance, murder, contemplated suicide and finally -- the haunting question of what it is to walk upon this planet.  “What a piece of work is man!”

Location: Patricia Corbett Theater

Tickets: $27-31 adults, $17-20 non-UC students, $15-18 UC students
Mainstage Season Production Sponsor: Macy’s

THE EARTH IS FLAT

Written by Todd Almond

Richard E. Hess, director

This love letter to the University of Cincinnati by CCM alumnus Todd Almond explores the universal awkwardness of the American college experience. The search for identity by those least prepared with answers resonates with unexpected comedy in this new play commissioned by CCM Acting as part of the Cincinnati Playwrights Conference in 2016. A coming of age story set in Calhoun Hall, The Earth is Flat follows purple-haired Ethan as he takes his first tentative steps toward self knowledge.

Location: Cohen Family Studio Theater

Admission: Admission is free. Reservations are required. Tickets become available at noon on Monday, Oct. 30. Please visit the CCM Box Office or call 513-556-4183 to reserve. Limit two tickets per order.

LOVE AND INFORMATION

Written by Caryl Churchill

Brant Russell, director


Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone’s not ready to talk. Someone is her brother’s mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone’s never felt like this before. In this fast moving kaleidoscope, more than 100 characters try to make sense of what they know.

Richard E. Hess and Brant Russell, producers


TRANSMIGRATION, so named for “the movement from one place to another” or “the transition from one state of being to another,” is a festival of new works created by the students in CCM Acting. Six teams of actors craft and perform six original 30-minute shows. Performed simultaneously in different locations throughout CCM Village, this 10th Anniversary Edition of TRANSMIGRATION will allow the audience to sample four different new works of their choosing in one spectacular evening. “Thanks to the [Acting] program at UC’s College-Conservatory of Music, theatre fans were offer a jolt of onstage vitality,” observed CityBeat’s Rick Pender.
