February 19 - March 6, 2016
Hunter and Jeff have decided to submit an entry to a new musical theatre festival – but the deadline is just three weeks away, and they have nothing written! With the help of some friends, they scramble to write a show that depicts the very dilemma in which they find themselves. An intimate musical that chronicles the story of its own creation and development, [title of show] is a joyful - and snarky - exploration of the creative process.

Our 18th Season

Catch Me If You Can
Music by Marc Shaiman; Lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman; Book by Terrence McNally
Directed by Avian Jangula
April 1 - 24, 2016
What's a boy to do when his parents are breaking up, he doesn't know where to turn, and he can't get comfortable in his own skin? Slip into someone else's! Teenage Frank Abagnale, Jr. impersonated a doctor, a lawyer, and an airline pilot, and passed $2.5 million worth of forged checks over the span of more than five years, all while being hunted by the FBI. Inspired by a true story, as depicted in the bestselling book and hit movie with the same title, this energetic musical gives Frank a chance to tell the audience his story, with all the flash and dazzle you'd expect from one of the world's most successful impostors.

by William Shakespeare
Directed by David Coral
June 3-12, 2016
Imagine you are offered a glance at your own future. Suppose you see a version of yourself you never dared imagine, achieving goals you never even knew you desired. Now return to the present: Are you still the same person you were before you saw this vision of your own potential? Macbeth. . . is not. Shakespeare's chilling portrait of the effects of temptation, ambition, and betrayal is one of the most compelling tragedies ever written. Something wicked is coming to the Black Box to close out The Chameleon Theatre Circle's 18th season!
