June 7th – 29th, 2024

Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Sundays at 2 p.m.

The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance.

Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium.

Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother.

As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, this romantic fairy tale still warms the hearts of children and adults alike.

Presented with the support of the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.

CINDERELLA is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization.

by George Bernard Shaw

A CWP Black Box Production

August 2nd - 11th, 2024

Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Sundays at 2 p.m.

In the original 1912 play that inspired the beloved musical My Fair Lady, Henry Higgins, a professor of phonetics, is so confident that he can train anyone to speak perfect English that he makes a bet with his associate Colonel Pickering that he will train a poor Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, to pass for a duchess.

Higgins first encounters Eliza in Covent Garden. Later she shows up at his door and he reluctantly takes her in. While he has some initial success polishing her speech, the tone of her conversation is still coarse. This does not stop the young, dashing Freddy Eynsforth-Hill from finding her alluring when he first meets her at one of Higgins’s mother’s genteel ‘at-homes’.

Mrs Higgins is concerned about the effect her son’s bet will have on Eliza, but he dismisses her worries. Having passed for a woman of wealth and high status with great success at a society ball, Eliza becomes frustrated and upset at the way she has been treated and the uncertainty of her future.

Will Professor Higgins finally see Eliza as more than a test subject? Will Eliza find the answer to the question "what's to become of me?"

Presented with the support of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.
