Happy New Year from the CFA Theatre family!

It may be challenging to come back to school after a blissful holiday break. But that's why we have a great show planned for you in January! It's time for the US Winter Play 'Arsenic and Old Lace'.

Everyone in Brooklyn adores the sweet old Brewster sisters who have an undying reputation of generosity and kindness.
Mortimer Brewster, their nephew, is a serious writer turned theatre critic (perish the thought) who grew up with his darling aunts in their home. Despite his fast paced sophisticated Manhattan pl***oy lifestyle, he has fallen for the girl-next-door and minister's daughter, Elaine Harper.
The sisters still take care of one of Mort's brothers who thinks he's Theodore Roosevelt, which the family treats with harmless indulgence. His other brother, who was deeply disturbed and violent, has been off in the "diamond business" for years.
Mortimer thought these were the most eccentric aspects of his family. Until...
While home visiting and planning to propose to Elaine, Mortimer finds a co**se hidden in a window seat. He starts to realize that his family is even crazier than he thought.

We invite you to come join us in the Brewster home; (yet another gorgeous set designed and built by CFA Tech Theatre and Design classes), for some brilliant performances and an evening of mystery, murder, mayhem...and maybe a delicious sip or two of the sisters' homemade Elderberry wine ;)

Places!
Thank you Places!
No, really. THANK YOU PLACES!!

This is the call from the stage manager that means, "Get in your place, the show is starting!"

It is exhilarating, terrifying, thrilling, and full of hope. It means everyone is ready to play their part in telling a story and bringing a beautiful work of art to life. Actors, crew, technicians, musicians, all at the ready to show the culmination of all of their hard work and creativity...and to have fun!

We are so very grateful that we have managed, with the support of our school and CFA families, to be able to make it to PLACES.

This incredible group of people have made history again at CFA. We are still making art happen amidst a pandemic! These students have all shown the determination, patience, resilience, grace, innovation, and talent to make it possible.

They continue to be more extraordinary than the extraordinary circumstance put before them.

And thank you Ellen Kanzinger, CFA alum '14 and photographer extraordinaire, for this awesome photo!

We are thrilled to announce our 2020-2021 season (subject to modification based on health recommendations)

Due to the pandemic, NCTC will be a virtual showcase, which we have not yet determined if we will be a part of. In lieu, we are planning a very exciting fall project; a culmination of 4 15-20 minute shows, all yet to be fully developed. They are structured in a way so as to be conducive for Green, Yellow, or Orange guidelines, for performers as well as audience members. We are looking forward to creating this unique and immersive theatrical experience! (November 6-7, 2020)

To celebrate the Upper School Cape Fear Academy Theatre Department advancing to the North Carolina Theatre Conference State Competition, we wanted to take a "Behind the Curtain" look at the production of the play, "Dress Rehearsal: A Catharsis in Two Acts," with a few of the key students involved in the production. Written and co-directed by CFA senior Mack Webb '20, hear how the play came to be in this second part of Behind the Curtain. And don’t miss a special preview of the play performed tonight at Cape Fear Academy's McNeill Fine Arts Center from 7:30-9pm.
To celebrate the Upper School Cape Fear Academy Theatre Department advancing to the North Carolina Theatre Conference State Competition, we wanted to take a "Behind the Curtain" look at the production of the play, "Dress Rehearsal: A Catharsis in Two Acts," with a few of the key students involved in the production. Written and co-directed by CFA senior Mack Webb '20, the play involved many weeks of work to make it a reality. First, step Behind the Curtain with senior Tess Tarses '20, set designer, to learn how the physical elements of the play came to life. A special preview of the play will be performed at Cape Fear Academy's McNeill Fine Arts Center on Monday, Nov. 18, from 7:30-9pm.
The first performances of our theatre season are this week. These little ones always amaze me with the talent they bring to the stage.
So excited for another amazing year of theatre!!!1
