The series concludes with CCA’s All Southern High School Theatre Project production of “Anything Goes,” Cole Porter’s tuneful, toe-tapping, high seas, madcap adventure which is presented Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. July 30–August 3.
The three-show season subscription is $55 for adults and $20 for students (ages 17 and under), and is a savings over individual ticket prices.

In addition to the summer subscription series, the Playhouse will present something new this year, a professional theater for young audience production of “Charlotte’s Web,” the story of the friendship of an irresistible pig and an extraordinary spider. This 50-minute, one-act version of the production is geared toward young audiences, ages 3–10, and is presented in the C.H. Moe Theater on selected Wednesdays and Saturdays, June 7–July 12. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for students/children, and seating is general admission. The play runs Saturday at 2 p.m. on June 7, 21, and July 12, and Wednesday at 10 a.m. on June 11, 25, July 2, and 16.
