Cannon Theater Company FAQs

What is Cannon Theater Company?
Cannon Theater Company (CTC) is the Upper School after-school component of Cannon's co-curricular theater program. Every year CTC performs a fall play at the North Carolina Theater Conference (NCTC) and then at Cannon. In the winter, CTC performs a larger scale musical or play. Musicals compete in the high school musical theater awards, known as the Blumey Awards. Every spring looks different for CTC depending on our focus and performance opportunities. Committing to CTC for a season is similar to committing to a Cannon athletics team.
What shows will be performed this year?
In fall of 2020, we will perform a one-act production of "She Kills Monsters". Stay tuned for details.
Are parents involved in CTC?
There is a long tradition of collaboration in CTC between the Cannon Theater faculty, theater students, and their parents. Parents are instrumental in house management, supporting the cast and crew with snacks and drinks, lending/transporting large set pieces and props, and helping strike the set after final performances. Parents also help chaperone during the NCTC weekend and provide potluck meals on CTC Night. CAFTA (Cannon Advocates for the Arts) has a dedicated Theater liaison parent who supports CTC as well as the Upper School and Middle School theater curricular programs throughout the year.

What is the Cannon Theater Cabaret?
The Cannon Theater Cabaret is an annual end of season celebration in May for Cannon Theater Company members, Upper School theater class students, and their parents. The audience enjoys dessert and coffee while entertained by an evening of short scenes, songs, and award presentations. It is also the setting in which we celebrate the accomplishments of our graduating seniors.
