    Northwest Cabarrus High School Presents: Curtains

    Thursday
    , April 4th, Friday, April 5th, and Saturday, April 6th
    Northwest Cabarrus High School Theater, 7 PM

    Under the direction of theatre director Andy Rassler, Northwest Cabarrus High School proudly presents Curtains on Thursday, April 4th, Friday, April 5th, and Saturday, April 6th at 7:00 PM in the Northwest Cabarrus High School Theater. Curtains is a musical mystery comedy by Rupert Holmes, Fred Ebb, and John Kander. Based on the original book and concept by the same name by Peter Stone, Curtains is set in 1959 Boston, Massachusetts and follows the fallout when Jessica Cranshaw, the supremely untalented star of Robbin' Hood of the Old West is murdered during her opening night curtain call. It is up to Lt. Frank Cioffi, a police detective who moonlights as a musical theater fan, to save the show, solve the case, and maybe even find love before the show reopens; all without getting killed himself. Cioffi also dreams giving up the cop life to pursue being an actor. Tickets are $5.00 at the door. Please consider supporting the students of Northwest Cabarrus High School on April 4-6, 2019.

    Thursday, April 11th, Friday April 12th, and Saturday, April 13th
    Central Cabarrus High School Theater, 7PM
    Tickets: Students $7 & Adults $10

Price, Central Cabarrus High School proudly presents Seussical on Thursday, April 11th, Friday, April 12th and Saturday, April 13th at 7:00 PM in the CCHS Theater. Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical, a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

    Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat, our narrator, tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child, who gets in trouble for thinking too many "thinks." Horton's challenge is twofold – not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!  Tickets are $7.00 at the door.  Please consider supporting the theatre students of Central Cabarrus High School by attending a performance of Seussical!
