Our Current Season

EACH SEASON the Musical Theatre program at CCM presents a season of musicals in the three theatres that comprise the Corbett Center for the Performing Arts. Both the mainstage season and the studio series are extremely popular and perform to capacity audiences. The selection of repertoire plays an important educational role in our training and students are exposed to every kind of musical during their residency at CCM.

In addition to our production season, we present two showcases each year, the Senior Showcase which performs in Cincinnati and New York and the Freshman Showcase which marks the debut of the entering class for the year.

OUR MUSICAL THEATRE SEASON, 2016-17

Runaways

IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE KNOW THEATRE
September 2016

RUNAWAYS

written and composed by Elizabeth Swados

In memory of Elizabeth Swados, a rare revival of her musical about the fragmented lives of young people who run away from home and find an existence on the city streets. Angry and disturbing, but told with great compassion, Runaways is a novel and deeply personal work by a theatre artist who constantly pushed the boundaries of the form.

They Were You

COHEN FAMILY STUDIO THEATRE
October 2016

THEY WERE YOU

devised by Aubrey Berg
musical arrangements by Steven Goers

A revue of songs by the authors of the world’s best-loved and longest-running musical, The Fantasticks. Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt reflect the human condition with humor, compassion and wry affection. The songs capture the universality of the everyday – adolescence, growth, relationships, marriage, disillusion, maturity and self-knowledge. They celebrate the resilience of the human spirit to turn ever towards joy. World Premiere.

A Chorus Line

PATRICIA CORBETT THEATRE

A CHORUS LINE

music by Mervin Hamlisch
lyrics by Edward Kleban
book by James Kirkwood, Jr. and Nicholas Dante

Winner of nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, A Chorus Line is the sixth longest-running musical in Broadway history. Providing a glimpse into the lives of performers at an audition, the show was dedicated to “anyone who has ever stood on line” and features Marvin Hamlisch’s most memorable score.

Mack & Mabelt

CORBETT Auditorium
March 2017

MACK & MABEL

music and lyrics by Jerry Herman
book by Michael Stewart

Set against the early days of silent comedy, the tumultuous relationship between producer Mack Sennett and his discovery Mabel Normand, reveals both the slapstick humor of the Keystone Kops and Bathing Beauties and the darker undercurrents of the Golden Age of Hollywood comedy. The star-crossed pairing finds perfect expression in Jerry Herman's well-known score.

"This is musical bliss: A guy and girl not merely falling but dancing into love, to an irrepressible Gershwin score - all in a production so spot on that the audience falls in love, too. Who could ask for anything more? Crazy for You is the College-Conservatory of Music at its best, which is saying a lot. And it's one of those shows that audiences will fondly recall a decade from now."
