Theatre has been around for over 4000 years, and it seems nothing can truly keep us away from it.  After 23 very long months, live performances finally made their way back to our stage.  We were thrilled to see so many of you attending Ben Butler and The Craftsman


Those productions were also very bittersweet for us, as they marked the final two shows directed by our founding Artistic Director, Bill Lelbach.  For the past 15 years, Bill has dedicated his life to bringing the highest quality shows and talent to this area, shepherding this company from a simple idea into a strong, sustainable reality – a home for incredible live theatre. 


I cannot tell you how reassuring it is to take over a company which has been given such a strong foundation to work from, and for that I will be forever grateful. 


I also am aware that nothing on CRT’s stage could happen without our incredible audience base, who have supported us without fail since year one.  The plan is to return in 2022 with a full season, including a unique musical, hilarious comedies and a classic thriller for the fall. 


To make this exceptional new season a reality in these difficult times, we’re asking you to donate to our 15th Annual Fall Appeal.  Last year we had a record setting amount of donations, which showed us how truly eager you are to have high quality, professional theatre continue here.  Please consider helping us make the return to full production – any amount helps.


I am truly honored to have been trusted with leading this theatre into the future.  And with the incredible support of our patrons and sponsors, I have no doubt it’s going to be quite an 



I look forward to seeing you at the theatre.

Zach Curtis, Producing Artistic Director
