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. Committing to CTC for a season is similar to committing to a Cannon athletics team.
What shows will be performed this year?
We will perform "The Children's Hour" in the fall (Nov 4-5 at NCTC and Nov 10-12 at Cannon) and the recent Broadway hit musical "Cinderella" in the winter (Feb 23-25.) If you are interested to read more about these shows, visit the Theater Productions webpage.
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 running the box office, 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.   Parents are welcomed and strongly encouraged to get involved when their child participates in CTC.

What is CTC Night?
CTC Night is an annual end of season celebration and awards event for students in CTC and their parents.   It is also the setting in which we celebrate the accomplishments of our graduating twelfth grade members.  There is usually a potluck dinner and an academy awards type show.  The students self-nominate and vote for each other to receive awards such as best actor and actress and best techie.
