CPCC Theatre kicks off its new season with a tasteful and imaginative revue of the music of Rodgers & Hammerstein A Grand Night For Singing. This fresh take on the music of two of the greatest American writers of musical theatre opened the 1994 Broadway season with flair and distinction, garnering wildly enthusiastic notices as well as earning two Tony nominations, including Best Musical. What makes A Grand Night for Singing so special is its fresh take on some of the most popular music ever written for the stage. Imagine a sultry Andrews Sister-esque Im Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-a My Hair or a swingin Honeybun worthy of the Modernaires. The New York Post wrote that Grand Night is A splendiferous show of songs, a terrific compendium. Everythings up to date with Rodgers & Hammerstein- it is indeed a grand night!
I want your fear. For your fear, like a current, rushes through your body. Your fear makes your heart pound; it renders your veins rich and full. So says the most famous vampire of them in all in this exciting new adaptation by Steven Dietz that restores the suspense and seduction of Bram Stokers classic novel to the stage. Rich with both humor and horror this play paints a wickedly theatrical picture of Stokers infamous villain.

See the play that brought Julie Harris and Ethel Waters to such high acclaim.

The Journal-American called it Something rare and special. Youll laugh and then cry at this masterpiece of the American stage.
