Noël Coward’s Present Laughter follows a self-obsessed actor in the midst of a mid-life crisis. Juggling his considerable talent, ego, and libido, the theatre’s favorite leading man suddenly finds himself caught between fawning ingénues, crazed playwrights, secret trysts, and unexpected twists.

JUNIE B. JONES, THE MUSICAL
MARCH 3-12

It’s Junie B.’s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie’s friend, Lucille, doesn’t want to be her best pal anymore and, on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” and first grade has never been more exciting.

Bill Loring "You can bring joy to people you've never met and that's just really incredible. It made me feel like this is where I need to be." Bill Loring Leah Tirado "Aaron, and the CIVIC, took a chance on me. I don’t know if he knew that he was giving me a second chance at life. I don’t know if he knew he was giving me this opportunity to continue to create." Leah Tirado Connie Chalko “I was very lonely. I didn't have friends. I was bullied and failing every class. I auditioned for a show and at that moment, my whole life changed. I can say it was a miracle." Connie Chalko Darlene Hampton "The CIVIC has given me a home. It’s brought creativity back into my life in a way that it hadn’t been in a long time. I get to be an artist again. I’m healthier, I’m happier, I am more confident." Darlene Hampton
