CPAS is proud to present our 2021-2022 season!

A panto company USA production.png

This adaptation of the classic Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale comes from the celebrated Panto Company, a well-known British children’s theater company with a US touring division. Featuring attractive staging and a humorous script, the show will take audience members to an undersea world of mermaids, colorful sea creatures and comical villains. The award-winning production, follows the dreams of a young girl who believes there is a better life for her out of the water. With stunning scenery, eye-catching costumes, original songs and lots of audience participation, this show makes for a thoroughly entertaining family day out.  

Watch as incredible artists paint giant works of art right before your eyes! This one-of-a-kind, interactive experience is accompanied by live musical performances, powerful vocals and high-energy choreography. Artrageous takes you on  a visual journey of inspiration, creativity, and engagement that will leave audiences of all ages singing, dancing, and clapping along!

We are working to reschedule this performance.
Please check back for updates!

When cool, smooth Pete the Cat moves in with the perfectly normal Biddle family, he rocks their world with his strumming and strutting. Everybody loves Pete, except for Jimmy, the world's most organized 2nd grader. But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class, Pete takes him on the inspirational journey of a lifetime! The whole family will love Pete's hilarious, jazzy antics in this toe-tapping musical.
