"Chloe started CCT when she was 8 years old. She has since been in 9 productions and shows, plus the fun summer camps that they have! Chloes favorite shows have been Annie, Pinocchio, Wizard of Oz, and Seussical. Chloe is typically a shy and reserved child but when she gets on that stage she shines! She owns the stage! Chloe has made lifelong friends at theater and she can be her true self with them without being judged. Not only do we consider the whole staff at CCT family, but I am so proud to be apart of a company that also puts Jesus first in everything they do! I have also worked backstage for years as a quick changer and I absolutely love it! We have known the CCT staff and owners since Chloe was little and we are blessed to have them in our lives!"
"We love CCT! Years ago, my precocious seven year old son attended a theatre camp and said, “For the first time, I don’t feel like a freak.” I wiped my tears and started looking for more opportunities. I’m so grateful that we found CCT. Our son has been in ten shows, a showcase, and several camps over the last seven years. He loves it!
What sets CCT apart? For one thing, there are auditions for parts, but EVERY kid is in the show. The big ensemble numbers with all the kids are the most fun. For us, this is the only youth theatre group with a rehearsal schedule we can manage with our work, school, and other activities. I’ve found the fees to be similar to those for music lessons and other after school activities. CCT includes kids from first grade to 18 years old and I love the way the older kids show interest in and help the younger ones. The best part is the beautiful family who runs it. These ladies pour their time and energy into creating a show every child can take pride in. They’ve been at it for years and really know their stuff. Claire even has a degree in Musical Theatre from Baylor and is a certified Talented Theatre teacher. Lastly, we love the lessons our son learns at CCT including teamwork, dedication, creative collaboration, helping younger children, taking constructive criticism, turning disappointment into motivation, leadership, responsibility, being supportive of cast mates, and so much more. Watching the CCT kids learn, grow, and love each other over the years has been a joy and a privilege."
"There is so much to say about CCT that I don’t know where to begin. First, it has given my oldest daughter a stage to perform and grow on. She absolutely loves, to sing, act, and dance. She has dreams of majoring in musical theater one day and possibly a career in theater. Without CCT she wouldn’t have had the instruction, encouragement, and growth to pursue her dreams. Second, the leadership at CCT has strong Christian-based values that gives me comfort to know that my girls are in good care. I would highly recommend CCT to anyone who loves theater!"
"We came to be part of CCT a little later than most, but we were accepted as family right away. The CCT organization has been a positive and encouraging force in my teenage daughter’s life like no other has before. She has strengthened existing relationships and has forged life-long friendships with others as a direct result of the incredible influence of the leadership and interaction with like-minded talented young people. We have been both impressed and pleased with the quality of the productions- from casting to staging to costumes. Because of the CCT organization’s influence in her life, my daughter is making decisions now that will have a major bearing in the direction her future will take. We are completely proud and honored to be a part of Central Community Theater."
