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.

EVERYONE BELONGS

a cabaret for The Harmony Fund
devised by Aubrey Berg

The Harmony Fund was established to celebrate the arts, encourage conversation, advocate compassion, promote culturally diverse audiences and fight hate and prejudice. Founder John Harrison writes: “The Harmony Fund was created as an acknowledgement of the continuing existence of hate and prejudice within this civilized world and, more importantly, the ability of the arts to help us better understand and transcend these emotions.”

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

A global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years, Jesus Christ Superstar is a timeless work set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally known series of events seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. Jesus Christ Superstar exploded onto the musical scene in 1971, stunning audiences and changing the face of musical theatre forever. It remains as compelling today as it was at its inception over four decades ago.

"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."
