I am a Camera
This play is taken from the stories of Christopher Isherwood and the title is a quote from the novel’s first page: “I am a camera with its shutter open, quite passive, recording, not thinking.” Germany between the World Wars had plenty to stir that passivity. The play’s heroine, Sally Bowles, went on to inspire the musical “Cabaret”. CRT’s staged reading stars Annie Gaybis, taking on the role that won Julie Harris her first Tony in 1952.

Songs for a New World
“It’s about one moment. That moment you think you know where you stand. And in that one moment, the things that you’re sure of slip from your hand.” Jason Robert Brown’s opening song sets the stage for the 14 mini-musicals that follow – all about people at the breaking point. Pianist Ben Beck teams with Chelsea Jo Conard, Everett Clark, Laniece Fagundes and Aladdin Demps in this vocally demanding score which features a wide range of styles including pop, jazz and gospel.

Shakespeare’s most powerful drama comes to the CRT season as part of a new collaboration with the Palm Coast Arts Foundation and its Shakespeare in the Park series. Spurred by a vision and unending ambition, Macbeth dares to upset the “divine right of kings” and reaps the terrible consequences. This classic tale of the thirst for power will be performed outdoors under a tent in Town Center, giving director John Sbordone the opportunity to stage an unusual and compelling production. Pre-show meals will be offered through PCAF as a fundraiser for the continuing efforts to build the new center.

When does appearance matter more than loyalty, family and tradition? Athol Fugard’s 1966 play is a searing drama of two siblings, only one of whom can pass for white in apartheid-ridden South Africa. When their role-playing reveals the disdain and murderous intent hidden under brotherly affection, it ties these two in an endless dance for supremacy. Fugard’s vision of life in his homeland cost him his South African passport and launched his international career.
