Fantastic and fun, Big Fish is a heartwarming tale of a fabulous taleteller. Edward Bloom has always told his son larger-than-life stories of his adventures. Now Edward is dying and his son, William, wants to learn the truth about those fantastic adventures. Instead, he learns a truth about his father and himself that’s much more valuable. Big Fish is a heartfelt, powerful and truly magical musical about fathers, sons and the stories that we use to define our identities.

November 12-21, 2021

Directed by Sean Dudley
Written By Oscar Wilde

A rose by any other name might smell as sweet, but what if it pretends to be named “Earnest?” This brilliant comedy captures with wit and charm the absurdity and delight of the Victorian “age of surfaces” (as Lady Bracknell calls it) while recounting the struggle of four passionate lovers trying to conform to expectations and, in the most roundabout and delightfully funny way possible, love whom they wish and live how they want. Fabricated and mistaken identities abound.

January 21-30, 2022

Directed by Stacey Driskell
Conceived by Alan Bailey, Written by Connie Ray, Musical Arrangements by Mike Craver

It’s October 1945. The war is over, and America’s years of prosperity are just beginning. But there’s another kind of rite of passage at the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, where the Reverend Mervin Oglethorpe is giving his last service and Dennis is taking over as the congregation’s pastor. This sequel to CCT’s 2018-2019 season hit Smoke on the Mountain brings back the original cast for an evening of bluegrass gospel favorites and down-home humor.

Blithe Spirit

March 11-20, 2022

Directed by Nedra Bloom
By Noël Coward

Blithe Spirit is a comic delight—nobody really believed anything would come of the séance, until Charles’ first wife turns up, visible only to him and anxious to regain the place of honor in the household that now belongs to the second wife. Intensely funny and character-driven, Blithe Spirit combines farce, emotion, and wit to great effect.

May 6-22, 2022

Directed by Nedra Bloom
Book by Dale Wasserman | Music by Mitch Leigh |
Lyrics by Joe Darion

While prisoners await judgment in the Inquisition, fellow prisoner and author Miguel de Cervantes tells them a tale of courage against impossible odds—the wonderful tale of Don Quixote, tilting at windmills, rescuing those unable to rescue themselves and standing forever for the triumph of right over wrong.

Keeping Our Audience and Our Casts Safe

At Chickasaw Civic Theatre the health and safety of both our audiences and our artists are priorities. We continue to monitor the ongoing health situation to be sure we are operating in a manner that prioritizes your health and safety as well as that of our casts. With this in mind, there are a few things for you to know regarding tickets and changes to our usual procedures.

  • To keep crowds small, only about half of our seats will be available.
  • Ushers will help space audience groups for safer seating.
  • Audience members are expected to wear masks the entire time they are at CCT.
  • After-show meet-and-greet and refreshments are on hold for now although bottled water will be available at intermission.
  • Holding a ticket to a performance indicates the attendee’s agreement to these guidelines.  

It is our hope that these changes will make the return to Chickasaw Civic Theatre this season as safe as possible for everyone.
