We are sorry if you were planning on coming this weekend and hope you can make our revised run dates, because this is one show you don't want to miss!!!
We are looking to cast a lead male role (age 40-50 but willing to go slightly younger / older) in our upcoming production of Neil Simon's LONDON SUITE, which runs May 13 through 22 (7 performances total). Rehearsals to begin week of 4/17. Please email director Christopher Diehl at [email protected] if you are interested and he will provide more details about the role/show.
2022 got off to a slow start for us - but there's nothing slow about our first show of the season! Tickets are now available online for this fast and furious farce, directed by Cindi East!
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!
New dates announced for Neil Simon's LONDON SUITE:
May 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21 @ 8 pm; May 15 & 22 @ 2:30 pm.
(Please note: This will be in place of the previously scheduled COMPLETELY HOLLYWOOD, which we hope to move to a future season.)
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING OUR SEASON OPENER:
CCT has made the very difficult decision to postpone the production of LONDON SUITE, which was scheduled to open on January 15, to a later time this season. Out of an abundance of caution and with the current significant rise in COVID-19 cases county wide we feel this is the best decision for our patrons, cast and crew's health and welfare.
Our community has been so supportive during the past few productions at the Seventh St. Community Theatre, and we look forward to performing for you again very soon. These decisions are not taken lightly as there is so much that goes into the process. The safety of all involved has to be and is our first priority.
Currently we're working on rescheduling LONDON SUITE so look for the new dates to be announced very soon. If you are a season ticket holder with questions about a refund, you can contact our box office: 909-590-1149. Please note that our second show, RUN FOR YOUR WIFE, is still on schedule for the dates that were announced.
We are so thankful for your patronage! Please stay safe and we'll see you in the spring!
God bless us, EVERYONE!

Dear Chino Community Theatre Patrons, Production Participants and Friends,
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, we have been closely monitoring its progression. It is with a heavy heart, but with the best interests of the community in mind, that we announce all CCT activities will be postponed or canceled effective today March 16, 2020, through May 15, 2020. The situation will continue to be carefully monitored and reevaluated as we receive updates from the City of Chino and other agencies.
While we postpone and reschedule dates with the production teams of Little Shop of Horrors, Real Women Have Curves, and Glengarry Glen Ross, we are diligently working to reschedule these productions and will keep you informed as to the potential dates.
If you are a season ticket holder, please consider your unused tickets a tax-deductible donation to Chino Community Theatre, or receive a refund for those shows by contacting the box office at 909-590-1149 or via email at [email protected].
We appreciate your patience as we navigate these uncharted waters. Our priority is the health and safety of all who visit the Seventh Street Theatre: our patrons, staff, production teams, performers, and volunteers. We thank you for your continuing support of the Chino Community Theatre.
The CCT Managing Committee
I was happily impressed with the way that Director East had taken that marvelous set and populated it with that well-crafted family of Simon’s characters. She had worked with each actor to help them gain insight into their character’s personality and circumstances of life and how the character would be responding to others as the events unfolded. I was impressed and delighted to hear those Brooklyn accents consistently and persistently coming from each one on stage. The direction was thorough and effective. Stand out performances were given that evening by David Gorsage (Eugene), Jamie Kaufman (Kate), and Sydney Reyes (Nora). They were, in turn, very well supported by the balance of the cast: Kristine Quinn (Blanche), Allyson Riley (Laurie), Ronit Kathuria (Stanley), and Robert S. Smith (Jack). The entire cast did well in learning how to work together as a unitary ensemble, smoothly taking their turns getting attention as appropriate and directing attention to others or even merging into the background (while often miming their activities as needed by the script. It was a pleasure to observe each cast member as they contributed to the telling of Neil Simon’s classic tale.
The world of Brighton Beach Memoirs was effectively presented to the audience through the contributions and creativity of the Crew. Particularly noticeable among them were the following: Assistant Director Faith De Jong, Stage Managers Faith De Jong and Marlee Lane, Production Coordinator Christopher Diehl, Master Carpenter Jim Ernsberger, Costume Design Candy Kane, Assistant to the Costumer , Jeanette Capuano, Light Designer Robby Meredith, Sound Design Brandon Roberts, Prop Master Sharon Ernsberger, Scenic Design Cindi East and Jim Ernsberger, Set Construction Jim Ernsberger, Cameron Harris, and Sharon Ernsberger, Set Decorator and Lobby Decorator Sharon Ernsberger. All of these helped bring into existence the place needed by Director East and her talented cast for their work.
If you enjoy live theatre that makes you laugh and gets you emotionally involved, you should not miss Chino Community Theatre’s fine production of Brighton Beach Memoirs. You can still come and see it tonight (Friday January 24th), tomorrow (Saturday January 25th), next Friday (January 31st), and Saturday (February 1st). Each of these dates still has seats available as indicated by the CCT website. Each of these performances is at 8pm. The matinee on Sunday January 26th is listed as sold out — and I have no information as to how many of the others might be getting close to being sold out, so don’t delay. Contact the CCT Box Office at (909) 590-1149 or online at www.chinocommunitytheatre.org. I am confident that you will be as delighted by your experience as I was. In fact, I already have reserved a ticket to be there to see it one more time on closing night. Yes, I did enjoy it that much.
Director Toni Lynd selected a very talented cast whose ages covered a span from teens and young adults to, let us say, well earned and deserved theatrical maturity, fully appropriate for the ages of the characters that they were portraying. Lynd took this group and worked with them so that they were able to understand the circumstances and emotional state of the people we meet and begin to know and understand as we watch Inge’s play. After the performance I spoke with one cast member who described how effectively Lynd had worked with the cast, to help them understand what life was like for the characters of the play, and what happened to them when the new person appeared in town and the various ways each character was impacted by his sudden but brief presence. She mentioned how it had helped her to develop her portrayal of her character and also gave her tools that she can use in developing how she approaches roles she performs in the future. The quality of the performances of each cast member clearly showed that Lynd had developed a sound understanding of these matters, and had assisted the entire cast to carry out their own analyses and perform their roles in harmony with what they had come to understand. Bravo, Toni Lynd, for the ways you helped your cast approach their character and bring this production to the stage, and likely for the ways that your cast members were helped to progress in their careers in live theatre.
The results of all these, and other, efforts were some very fine performances that I was pleased to watch that evening. Especially outstanding work was done by the following: Candace Elder (Helen Potts), David Rodriguez (Hal Carter), Makayla Abad (Millie Owens), Samarah Solorio (Madge Owens), Lisa Wisong Miller (Flo Owens), LizAnne Keigley (Rosemary Sydney), Brandon Roberts (Alan Seymour), and George Waters (Howard Bevans). In addition, quite good supporting acting was provided by Robby Meredith (Bomber), Megan Ward (Irma Kronkite), Mary Pineda (Christine Schoenwalder), and Terna Sepulveda (Linda Sue Breckinridge).
The play was also greatly impacted by the excellent work done by the following Crew members: Co-Stage Managers (Faith De Jong & Marlee Lane), Production Coordinator (Julie Mort), Master Carpenters (Paul Larson & Doug Rumbaugh), Costumer (Cathy Miller), Light Design (Brandon Roberts), Asst. Light Design (Robby Meredith), Sound Design (Samarah Solorio & Brandon Roberts), Sound Tech (Ryan Noueihed), Prop Master (Marlee Lane), Scenic Design (Marlee Lane), and Set Construction by the Cast and Crew.
This is an outstanding production of live theatre that was appreciated by its audience, with several members giving a standing ovation at the curtain calls. Inge has provided a play that still resonates with the audience’s sensibilities and touches their emotions even after all these years. And CCT’s excellent production provides a perfect setting for its presentation. If you are one who appreciates quality mature live theatre, I strongly urge you to come see how these folks will get you thinking and emotionally involved. The run closes next weekend, but there will be two more performances, on Friday and Saturday at 8pm. Since some performances have had sold out houses, I urge you to buy your tickets online at www:chinocommunitytheatre,org or by phone at (909) 590-1149. I think you will enjoy yourself if you do come and see it.
